It has heen no little pleasure to chron- 
icle herein the many events of what 
has proved to he one of Iowa's most 
prosperous years, and to lay hefore 
you some of those honors that are 
solely IoWas. 

cr ~ts>here have heen days overcrowded 
With joy; there have heen other days 
not so happy, although just as pleas- 
ant to review again today. Those 
numerous happy hours spent Within 
the dignified hall and classroom, along 
the grassy terraces of the campus, or 
in the quietude of shaded sunflecked 
retreats of the heautiful IoWa, Will 
always echo in your memory as 
days of genuine happiness. May they 
never re-echo Without some kind 
thought of your Alma Mater and her 
sons and daughters.

F YOU want a great university, become a 
great student ; for if we can have students 
who arise to the opportunity of the univer- 
sity, we can be great. The world offers you 
a challenge today; thousands have accepted 
it. You who have started owe it to your- 
selves to accept this challenge. 

You are here on the world-old quest for education. 
Far back in history men were interested in seeing their 
ideas transfered to the next generation and inspired 
with the idea of establishing an institution of higher 
learning. With the development of civilization there 
has been an enormous increase in the number of people 
that participate in this thing, and a narrow field has 
broadened into a wide range of activity. Today there 
are six thousand freshmen in the state of Iowa. This 
can mean but one thing — competition. 

— President Walter A. Jessup. 
(From a speech in 1916.)

To check every purchase and expenditure made by 
the University is the primary duty of Secretary W. H. 
Bates. As a law student, he attended the institution 
prior to assuming his present duties as a member of 
the administration. Secretary Bates has been connected 
with the University in some capacity or other since

The Student Council is a recent organization at Iowa, having been formed at the beginning 
of the school year through the efforts of the honorary senior societies, A. F. L and Staff and 
Circle. Briefly, the plan provides for representatives from each college on the campus, to be 
elected at the regular autumn elections. Serious diversities of opinion have arisen over the 
exact system of representation as relating to the College of Liberal Arts and the professional 
colleges, and over the jurisdiction of the council in matters pertaining to the individual colleges. 
At present it appears that the difficulties can be eventually settled peaceably and with benefit to 
both sides concerned. 

The Student Council is a permanent organization at other universities, and should be so at 
Iowa. The idea has met with the favor of both student body and faculty; it marks a distinct 
forward step in the steady march of student democracy and self-government. It is the organ for 
the expression of student opinion. With continued hearty co-operation it cannot fail to become 
an influential factor in university life.

In the spring of 1919, the bulk of a huge building constructed about an immense hollow square 
loomed up high on the west banks of the Iowa river. Originally planned as a barracks, the 
shadows of the S. A. T. C. had departed ere the masonry was completed, and thus Iowa was in 
possession of a building that became what is today the "Quadrangle". 

The government of this dormitory is administered wholly by the students living there. A 
committee of faculty advisers serves to connect the organization with the administration. Ac- 
cording to the constitution drawn up early in the year, the administrative bodies of the "Quad- 
rangle" consist of a general council, composed of one elected chairman and four section chairmen. 
Judicial, health, financial, and social committees are formed within the general council. In 
addition, four resident students are appointed by the administration to act as proctors. The 
Quadrangle Association as formed, includes all who reside at the dormitory, and numbers 
among its members students from every school and college on the campus, ranging from freshmen 
to post-graduates. 

It is interesting to note that Iowa is the first state institution in the Middle West to introduce 
a dormitory system for the housing of men. The introduction of the Quadrangle marks the birth 
of an entirely new institution on Iowa's campus, one that will ultimately play an important part 
in the activities of the student body. 


CARCELY more than one year ago two prominent men of the University walked 
slowly along the river road and discussed the University of the Future. The first 
lamented the fact that those early sturdy builders did not see more clearly that some 
day the University of Iowa was to expand and that the ideal site for it was on the 
west side of the river. "But it is too late now; we are pegged down by the one 
historic building that will never be moved and around which has been built our 
university. It will never expand across to the bluffs, here." 

That "elegant stone building," as the early catalogs were wont to call the Old Capitol, was at 
that time the locus of the campus. Built of native limestone, hauled from the Cedar river 
quarries, lined with a half million bricks that were burned in local brickyards, it stood high upon 
the bluff overlooking the Iowa river. It was first used as a university building in 1857, and the 
other class rooms were in Mechanics Hall, on Linn street. Few are the colleges that were 
established prior to 1890 that did not lay claim to having been housed at some time or another 
in the Old Capitol. 

In those early days chapel exercises were compulsor\" and each morning a monitor checked the 
empty seats exactly at a quarter of eight, to catch the absent and late-comers. There was even 
a time at the University when it was seriously discussed by the Board in Control as to whether 
women were to be admitted to study here at all. 


But that has passed. In less 
than six months from the time 
that these two men strolled along 
the river road, the first dirt was 
turned for the site of the new 
Perkins' Hospital, and there now 
stands on these same bluffs no 
less than six University build- 
ings, fully completed. Further 
plans are in hand for others to 
be constructed as soon as prac- 
ticable. This is but a hint as to 
what will be the University of 
the Future. It is no longer a 
vague dream, this new campus 
across the river. Where once the 
red man enjoyed the shade of 
the mighty trees, now stands the 
old south hall Men's Quadrangle, housing some 

three hundred men; and soon will be heard a further whirr and clank of machinery as new 
structures lift themselves a part of the University of Iowa. There, too, stands the Children's 
Hospital, where crippled kiddies come from the whole of the state to receive treatment at what 
is probably one of the finest hospitals of its kind in the Middle West. One story in height, it is 
arranged in a series of pavilions so that it may be extended as it outgrows its present capacity. 
Across from this are the homes of the nurses, originally homes of private individuals, now 
transferred into dormitories for those connected with the hospital. 

What will another decade produce for Iowa? As the filmy visions of those practical dreamers 
of yesterday have materialized, so will the dreams of the men of today ultimately find expression 
in piles of brick and mortar. The Iowa Memorial Union, with its spacious accommodations, 
will also look down on the river below, serving as a community center for a great University, 
a fitting memorial to the sons and daughters of Iowa who have so well served nation and state 
in the wars that have periled our country. 



To attempt to state definitely just where the Iowa Memorial Union is to be erected would be 
the duties of the prophets. Many suggestions have been received, but indications point to the 
selection of the end of North Capitol street as the probable site, with the north and south axis 
of Old Capitol in line with the new building. Toward the north and west, the grounds slope 
naturally toward the river, which makes a bend above this point, and here are superb oppor- 
tunities for the architect and landscape gardener. The site is high and will present a wonderful 
vista between the Old Capitol and the Union when the old dental and old physics buildings are 
removed. As for the type of architecture, all the buildings east of the river are of renaissance 
style, and it is not improbable that the Iowa Memorial Union will present the same. 

Like the exterior, the interior is also but a matter of conjecture. On the ground floor it is 
planned to have the offices of the University organizations; the Alumni Bureau, Y. M. C. A. and 
Y. W. C. A. will be accommodated here, and space will be provided for the undergraduate club 
rooms and the grill. The lobby will contain the memorial tablets, and a monumental stairway 
will lead to the second floor. In the basement game rooms and the kitchen will be located, the 
latter serving the upper floors by dumb waiters. The second floor will contain a large and 
beautiful room which may be used for receptions, dinners, balls, etc. Accommodations must also 
be made here for the nine literary societies. 



These plans are, of course, subject to revision or enlargement at any time, and new suggestions 
are welcomed at any any time by those in charge. Meanwhile the work of raising funds for 
the proposed structure is progressing in a satisfactory manner. The state has been divided into 
eleven campaign districts, each in charge of a chairman who has under him the smaller units 
of county or city. The various other chairmen are in charge of cities or communities scattered 
throughout the country. Student committees are making a thorough canvass of the University 
and the undergraduate body is responding in a gratifying manner. 

The Memorial Union, in addition to providing a fitting remembrance of the sacrifices of 
students and alumni, will furnish a social and recreational center for the University. Other 
schools have similar plans in mind, some of them already under way. It remains for the Alumni 
and student body to work together in harmony for the accomplishment of so worthy a project. 
The beginning has been a splendid one: may the dreams of our administration soon be realized. 



OUBTLESS even' school has upon its rosters names of men prominent in the present 
day world of business, politics, religion, or literature, and Iowa is certainly not behind 
the others in this respect. Listed among the graduates and former students may be 
found names that are today among the foremost in every phase of the varied life of 
our country. Probably the most widely known alumnus of today is Governor Frank 
O. Lowden, of Illinois, class of '85. Governor Lowden worked his way through the 
College of Liberal Arts, and after finishing a law school education in Chicago, entered politics 
in that state. He is now a presidential possibility. William Squire Kenyon is another who has 
attained prominence in the political world. Graduating from the Law College in 1890, he 
began practice in Fort Dodge, and has since served as Circuit judge, assistant to the attorney 
general of the United States, and Senator from Iowa, holding the latter position at the present 

Iowa is well represented among the authors and writers. Randall Parrish, successful novelist, 
received a degree of LL. B. in 1879, and in 1911 the honorary Litt. D. was conferred upon him 
by the University. His books are mainly novels based upon historical periods of American life. 
Emerson Hough, author of "The Mississippi Bubble", "54-40 or Fight", and other well known 
books, graduated in 1880 with the degree of B. Ph. He afterward travelled extensively in the 
then wild and unsettled Northwest, deriving therefrom many of the plots and settings for his 

Charles Reynolds Brown, Dean of the Divinity School of Yale, is one of the best known of 
theologians at the present time. He took his degree of A. B. at the University in 1893, and his 
M. A. in 1896, being appointed to his position at Yale in 1911. John Burke, treasurer of the 
United States and three times governor of North Dakota, received the degree of Bachelor of Laws 
in 1896. After practicing law in Des Moines until 1888, Mr. Burke moved to North Dakota, 
and, following his successful political career in that state, was appointed United States Treasurer 
by President Wilson in 1913. Vilhjalmar Stefansson, Arctic explorer and ethnologist, has repre- 
sented Iowa in the fields of geographical and ethnological discovery. In 1903 he received his 
degree of B. Ph., and concluded his education with work at Harvard. His Arctic explorations 
have been continuous during the period from 1906 to 1917, and have been unusually successful. 
Another, Martin Joseph Wade, Judge of the Southern District United States Circuit Court, 
graduated with his law degree in 1886, and is a well-known jurist. Edward L. Sabin, '90, is a 
very successful writer of short stories and comic opera. 

In mentioning these men who have achieved distinction in their chosen vocations, we should 
be ever mindful of the alumni of Iowa who have never attained that end where fortune lays 
her treasures at their feet. By far the greater majority have left their university and entered 
quietly upon their duties, content to go their way according to the standards instilled within them. 
They lay no claim to honors; they represent but the highest standard of manhood and womanhood. 


HE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA ASSOCIATION was organized in June, 1867, by 
graduates of several departments of the University. As the number of alumni has 
constantly increased the Association has extended its scope and functions, and at 
present ranks among the first of such organizations throughout the country. The 
present officers are: President, Frederick W. Sargent, Des Moines; Vice-President, 
Rush C. Butler, Chicago; Treasurer, Paul A. Korab, Iowa City; Acting Secretary, 
Forest C. Ensign, Iowa City; Assistant Secretary, Grace P. Smith, Iowa City. 

The Association performs many important functions. Its card files contain records of over 
twelve hundred alumni, which are listed alphabetically, geographically, and by years and classes. 
Every effort is made to keep these files up to date in every way, and the numerous calls made upon 
them for varied information show their worth not only to the University and her graduates, but 
to many outside agencies as well. A special directory of living graduates was issued by the 
Association this year, the first of its kind since the Alumni Register of 1911. It is now planned 
to issue such a directory two or three times a year. 

At Homecoming the Association is particularly active. Special headquarters are maintained 
where arrangements are made for the convenience and housing of guests, with facilities for 
registration, badges, autos, rest rooms, and general information. A similar headquarters is 
installed at every annual State Teachers' Assoication meeting, where a delegate meets returning 
alumni and distributes literature regarding the University. 

The official organ of the Association is The Ioiva Alumnus, a magazine published monthly 
during the school year. Its publication was begun in 1903, with J. W. Rich as the first editor. 
The magazine has been unusually successful financially, enjoying heavy advertising and large 
campus sales in addition to the mailing list, and through the generosity of certain graduates The 
Alumnus has been placed upon the reading tables of over one hundred of the principal high 
schools of the state. With a paid-up subscription list of about 1900, the magazine carries Iowa 
news into the homes of prosperous Iowa alumni in every corner of the world. Mrs. Grace 
Partridge Smith, '91, is the editor-in-chief, with J. Mel Hickerson, '20, as present business 

The Iowa Memorial Union is THE present activity of the Association. The movement was 
started by its official action in June of 1919. The graduates are backing the Union to their 
utmost; their files are locating alumni and telling them of the proposed structure; it will be a 
source of active discussion at all class reunions. A special February edition of The Alumnus, 
called "Foundation Day Number", dwelt especially on the past of the University, and upon the 
Union and its value to the school of the future. 

The University of Iowa Association is an important asset to the institution. It is sound 
financially; its members are "live wires"; it is back of every worthy movement for the betterment 
of the Alma Mater. May its future ever he bright. 


7 s "y th at tne members of the present Junior Class started their career on 
T some named memorable date would on the fare of it be ivrong. The class 

here presented includes members from all colleges, some here for the first time, 
\ others with five or six years spent in gaining the status of a Junior in their par- 
ticular college. 

Among the present class, as among other classes, are many who started 
prior to the recent war and are now returned to complete their work. Many have 
seen foreign service, and carry scars of actual conflict. Others were in home camps 
waiting impatiently for that opportunity that never came. To all the classroom and 
campus were forgotten in the hurried events that came early in 1917 as they hastened 
a-ivay to answer the call to national service. Probably these men are in the majority, 
and among them are those zvho have visited many climes and could tell tales of as many 

Indeed under the quiet unassuming air of more than one, might be found a per- 
sonality that has seen rivers run red at evening, or have watched dawn break clear only 
to hear the muffled command to advance, they knew not where. Through summer's 
sun and winter's sleet they have kept faith, taking their lot as it came. There are 
those that have been decorated with military honors, but they icould tell you nothing 
of it. War's horrors are to them a closed chapter that is not to be opened. 

The class of 1921 numbers well into six hundred. Not an easy body to assemble, 
class meetings are an unheard-of thing. Organized to a limited extent in some col- 
leges, in others they would present a motley group if once brought together. Among 
them would be found individuals versed in every activity on the campus. The cap- 
tains of this and next year's football teams, editors of publications, intercollegiate de- 
baters, followers of the footlights thai have tivinkled often before university audiences, 
orators, — in fact, mi array of leaders that have gained their reputation upon Iowa's 

True, there are many that would be here, members of this same body, but their 
services to the nation during the crisis have left them unable to re-attend, while still 
others went forth happily, never returning. Their sacrifices cannot but remain fresh 
and their associations endeared in our memory. Still others found the climate unfitted 
for them and moved on; — the reivards of their labors insufficient , — for the University 
of Iowa would not support drones. 

With the return of peace, and many men, the class of 1921 has found increased 
vigor within its ranks. But not alone; -women ivere entrusted to handle many things 
during the ivar, and with the return to a peace basis they have not lost their enthusi- 
asm but have ably carried on side by side with men. They are to be found in more 
than one college often taking professional ivork, work that until recently w-s wholly 
limited to man.

HE College of Liberal Arts was established as the Collegiate Department in 1855, the 
first department of the present university, and around it all the others have developed. 
In 1858 the first class was graduated — a class of one. During these years Amos 
Dean was president and at the same time chancellor of the law school at Albany, 
New York, coming to Iowa only on two occasions for short visits. 
J » This uncertain administrative system combined with lack of funds led to a suspen- 

sion of the department for two years, but work was again begun in 1860, with six professors 

Prof. George Frederick Kay 

instructing in as many courses. Silas Totten had been elected to the presidency in 1859 and 
became the first resident president, although not until 1865. 

In the courses at that time special stress was laid on mathematics and the ancients, as evidenced 
by the requisites for admission. A knowledge of algebra, geometry, and trigonometry 
was demanded, combined with four books of Caesar and Cicero, Vergil's Aeneid, Xenophon's 
Anabasis, and other Greek readings. 

The first catalog, published in 1857, lists eighty-three men and forty-one women enrolled. 
Since then many are the changes that have come about. The College of Liberal Arts had 
expanded by 1875 to an enrollment of some hundred and sixty-seven students with nineteen pro- 
professors; seventeen years more found a faculty of fifty-three and a student body numbering 
three hundred and fifty. The graduating class of that year — 1892 — counted exactly fifty. 
Slowly but surely the college was growing and making headway toward the goal it today has 
set. A few short years and the growth became perceptible by degrees as the school years 
rolled around. 

In 1900, when the Collegiate Department became known as the College of Liberal Arts, it had 
begun to grow rapidly. The number of instructors and graduates had doubled, while the 
undergraduate body had exceeded this increase. But soon the expansion was to be marked in 
more ways than merely by an increasing student body. 

The history of the college from that period has been one of steady growth, effected only by 
the war. The period of hostilities in Europe found the college slightly under previous years 
in registration, but its close marked the beginning of a new era in education. A forty-five per 
cent increase resulted for the present year, bringing the enrollment to twenty-six hundred 
students. There are twenty-eight departments in which one hundred and seventy-five instructors 
are teaching over four hundred courses. 

Today the College of Liberal Arts offers opportunity for work in practically any branch of 
letters or science. Graphic and Plastic Arts, under the guidance of Prof. C. A. Cummings, is 
attracting students from all parts of the Middle West because of the high standard of work 
and the classes are always crowded. The Home Economics department offers special courses 
that are taken advantage of by many young women, while journalism also attracts many who 
desire further training in handling stories and also those who intend to enter that field. 
Specialization in any of the sciences, such as geology, botany, zoology, chemistry, physics, or 
mathematics, may be had after the second year of prescribed work has been completed. Further 
still there are many who ultimately intend to enter some professional college. Usuallv the 
requirements are of such a nature that they spend the first year or two in the field of letters 
and sciences, preparing for the more intensive study that is to follow in the specialization. 

The future will see a rapid growth indeed. The world desires, yea, even demands, an educa- 
tion, and it must come from the college-trained man and woman. Society insists upon a college 
training before she bestows her choice laurels, and she hearkens only to the pleas of knowledge, 
efficiency, and versatility. The College of Liberal Arts has experienced an advancement that, 
when taken in the composite, staggers one. With this increase of the student body there has 
come a marked movement for greater and better equipped buildings. Even now space is at 
a par, no matter where one searches. New branches are slowly filling out the arc of the older 
sciences, and they must and will maintain themselves along with the advancement of the race. 
It is to the promotion of modern education — general though it may be — that the College of 
Liberal Arts looks forward to, and just what the next decade will produce in the lines of this 
work we can but surmise. 


R. DEXTER EDSON SMITH, formerly of 
Iowa City, and now residing at Santa Ana, 
California, was the first graduate of the 
University of Iowa, receiving his degree in 
1858. In sending his greeting to the Iowa 
Alumnus, Mr. Smith wrote: "My studies in 
the University were but a prelude to my education. 
I have been a continuous student to the present time." 

Iowa's first alumnus is now over eighty years of age, 
and still takes a keen interest in the activities of his 
Alma Mater. He is a loyal booster of the proposed 
Memorial Union, and truly reflects the spirit of his 
signature: "Yours for eternal progress."

The problems of business fifty years ago when only a few thousand dollars were needed to 
conduct a business enterprise were simple. Markets were local and competition did not play an 
important role. The old order is changed. Few, indeed, of the practices of our fathers are to be 
found in the business methods of the present. During the past twenty-five years American 
industrial and business life has undergone many changes and the business unit has increased 
from the small plant to the gigantic corporation with intricate and complete organization. Inven- 
tions and improvements in endless succession have everywhere increased the effectiveness of 
business enterprises until today the world is progressing at a greater pace than ever before. 

The important task confronting business men is the consideration of the complex business prob- 
lems from every angle as to individual and national efficiency. This emphasizes the necessity of 
employing scientific methods in the analysis of these problems. Business demands that the training 
for its vocation should be placed upon the same scientific basis. It is unwise to permit the pros- 
pective executive to learn exclusively from the mistakes of daily routine. 

Business men are essentially thinking men. They have been trained by experience to think 
along common sense and practical lines, and a school of commerce is to teach men how to think. 
It gives mental discipline, not mental stuffing, and the young man is taught to analyze, synthesize, 
compare, differentiate, and to reason logically to correct conclusions. These abilities are essential 
to the business man, and he is successful or unsuccessful to the extent that he possesses such 
qualifications. He may acquire them by experience — most men do; but training in "the school 
of hard knocks" is condemned today as wasteful. The recognized place for the development of 
the type of mind is a school of commerce. 

Little do young men realize the real significance of training for business. Little do they know 
that the problems of business are; as intricate, if not more so, than those of the professions, and 
that business training must be as comprehensive as in law or in medicine. 

Schools of commerce came into existence to meet the demand for better trained men. The 
Wharton School of Commerce was established in 1881, and only during the last decade has the 
increasing complexity of business problems emphasized the need for men who are trained to 
think. To meet the demand the School of Commerce was established at the University of Iowa 
by action of the Iowa State Board of Education, September 15, 1914. 

During the last decade, there has been a decided change in the attitude of educators toward 
the time that should be taken in a course of business training. Formerly, it was thought that a 
student should be rushed into specialized courses in his freshman year and few believed that it 
was necessary to give more than a two-year training. Today, the average school of commerce 
demands two-year pre-commerce work as well as a two-year intensive course; the pre-commerce 
training devoted to development of mental discipline and power of analysis as well as a training 
in such fundamentals that are needed as a foundation for the specialized courses. The junior 
year is devoted to fundamentals underlying business, and the senior year contains the specialized 
courses organized along vocational lines. 

Laboratories and experience in actual business and class room are necessary factors in securing 
the practical training. The school of commerce furnishes such laboratories as banking, account- 
ing, statistical, business, and office. These laboratories are well equipped, the aim being to 
acquaint students with appliances and methods used in efficient business. Even' student in 
commerce should be compelled to spend at least two summers in following the special vocation 
that he is preparing to enter. This will give an acquaintanceship with actual business and will 
be a preparation for the laboratory work in his senior year. Actual business problems are dis- 
cussed in the class room, the principles underlying the same worked out, and the student trained 
how to analyze such problems and work out the best possible solutions. 

The school of commerce offers special training in many fields of the present day business. 
Accounting, its various phases in respect to the duties and responsibilities of a public accountant 
is taught along with banking and finance; retail business, with a special outlook concerning ad- 
vertising, buying, cost system, store management, commercial law and display, is taught, and a 
study is made of the mail order business to explain how it may be successfully met in competi- 
tion. Private and public secretarial work, insurance, transportation, railroads, and actuarial 
science all find a place in the curricula of the school of commerce. 

In conjunction with the commercial studies is the Commerce Club, an elective organization, 
where the students may meet and be able to actually see the magnitude of the commercial 
problems of today. 


' «/^TNE of the most interesting and instructive places about the university for both student 
" I ;| j and visitor, is the Commercial Museum, maintained in connection with the School of 
\ / Commerce. Dr. Clarence \V. Wassam, Assistant Professor of Commerce, has charge of 
v.- - v the Museum and has collected a large number of commercial products with the object 
M " of giving a concrete idea of the articles of commerce in different stages of their manu- 
1; M facture or growth. Modern education is not satisfied when it has presented the finished 

product as it appears on the market, but demands that the student understand the different forms 
and processes through which it has passed, and the museum is a source for that study. 

A few of the more important commercial exhibits may be here mentioned. Carborundum, which 
is made of sawdust, sand, coke, and salt, is a product in which the manufacturer is much inter- 
ested, as it is used in place of emery in making of many different kinds of abrasive materials. 
The rubber industry is well represented. Samples of rubber made by various processes are shown 
and there may also be found an excellent exhibit of rubber made from corn. The textile industry 
is well represented, showing samples of cotton, wool, silk, ramie, linen, and several other coarse 
fibres. One part of this exhibit which always attracts attention is the shelf which shows samples 
of a beautiful cloth made from a weed grown in southeastern Asia, samples of silk made from 
wood fiber, and a material used in surgical dressings, made from wood. 

The slaughtering and meat packing industry has attracted much attention in recent years, and 
the saving made by large concerns in the use of by-products is well illustrated by an exhibit of 
a number of these products. Samples of cereals from different countries are shown, and some 
interesting comparisons may be made. A large variety of products from asbestos is presented, 


explaining the nature of the material. The fresh-water pearl industry, which has been largely 
developed in our own state, contributes a large exhibit, and several photographs are used with 
this exhibit showing the first fresh-water pearl button factory in the world. Lumber industries 
has not been forgotten and in addition to samples of different woods there are two sections of 
pine trees which show the method of tapping to secure turpentine. Some of the implements used 
in the southern part of the United States for preparing the pine tree for turpentining are also 
shown. The different materials for the making of paints and varnishes furnish another subject 
which never fails to attract attention, and an almost endless number of products from crude 
petroleum are represented by samples of a number of the more important ones. The cocoanut, 
which furnishes nearly everything for the native islander, is well presented, and tea, coffee, 
cocoa, chocolate, and spices. The Department of Agriculture at Washington, D. C, has been of 
great service in furnishing samples of food adulterants for the museum. Samples of fur from 
Russia and other foreign countries used for hat making are included in the collection, and even 
the ever useful fountain pen has furnished material to the exhibit. 

The products are so arranged that it is possible for the visitor to secure an excellent idea of 
the different stages in the progress of the growth or manufacture of the articles, and the museum 
is used for the most part by the students of the School of Commerce. 


The banking and accounting laboratories of the School of Commerce were established some 
years ago with the origin of the school, and have gradually grown until today two large rooms 
on the third floor of the Liberal Arts Hall are now devoted exclusively to this work. Students 
are here given the opportunity to meet the actual problems that must confront them in the 
banking profession and although no illusions are cherished that trained bankers will be forth- 
coming at once, the experience is invaluable to those intending to enter a bank upon graduation. 

The handling of routine papers and a knowledge of ledgers, journals, bookkeeping, and bank 
machines is practically necessary for the student who will enter the modern office. Experience 
with important books and forms used in banking, such as ledgers, deposit slips, signature cards, 
notes, drafts, statements, and credit sheets are all necessary, and in addition the student is afforded 
the chance to familiarize himself with the most up-to-date comptometers, adding machines, and 
bookkeeping machines. All of these are now in the School of Commerce and every student is 
placed in the position of banker for a time and made to carry on the business alone. 

In the banking course the student spends on an average one hour a week in the laboratory, 
devoting this time to the procedure of a modern office. A series of problems are also used to 
test the student with this procedure, and when finished have taken up all the usual transactions 
that will confront the practical banker. 


The Order of Artus was founded primarily to increase interest in the study of Economics 
and to set a higher scholastic standard among schools of commerce. Membership is limited to 
students of Economics, Sociology or Commerce who have attained a specified standard of grades 
in their studies, and who will set an example in their respective lines. Honorary in nature and 
under the supervision of very capable men, the Order of Artus has had a very successful be- 
ginning. The number of chapters is small, and may all be found in the Middle West, the 
original organization having its foundation at the University of Wisconsin. Few indeed are 
they who, as students of present day business methods and economics, do not strive to some day 
be elected to the highest of honors that can be bestowed in school life, the honorarv fraternity.

A national interest in the physical development of 
boys and girls has been rapidly growing and extending 
over the United States, with the emphasis shifted from 
the training for war to the preparation for the emer- 
gencies of peace. 

The University of Iowa, through its Child Welfare 
Research Station and Extension Dixision, has formu- 
lated a co-operative plan to assist every school officer 
and parent in the state to record and evaluate the 
semi-annual measurements of the growth of their boys 
and girls, between the ages of six and eighteen years. 
These measurements, which are few and simple, offer 
the gest indices of growth, health and nutrition. 
The essential principle of the plan lies in the co-operative feature between the university 
specialists and the school or parents, afford- 

Prof. Bird T. Baldwin 

ing continuous observations on the same 
children for periods from one to twelve years. 
In no homes or schools in the United States 
have an appreciable number of children been 
measured consecutively, and this is the first 
state to organize, as one phase of its child 
welfare work, a standardized method for 
repeated measurements on the came boys and 
girls for long periods of time, resulting in 
individual history curves of definite scientific

The Iowa Child Welfare Research Station was established in the fall of 1917, as an integral 
part of the State University of Iowa, and occupying temporary quarters in the old Science 
building. It came only as the result of considerable effort for many years on the part of the 
women of the state, and it was in 1917 that the actual bill authorizing the station was passed. 

Today this station occupies the top floor of the old Dental building with its laboratories, testing 
rooms, offices, and class rooms. Research work is carried on in the new Children's Hospital. Be- 
sides the director, a staff of twelve assistant research associates and statisticians are busy endeavor- 
ing to discover basic principles applicable on a state-wide basis for the betterment of Iowa boys and 
girls. In the recent war Iowa was outdone by twenty-three states in the percentage of physically 
defective men examined for military service. One' of the station's greatest aims is to have Iosva 
with no defectives at all should similar occasion arise. 

The station was recently given enthusiastic and practical recognition by the W. C. T. U. by 
an appropriation of $50,000, or one-third of the amount set aside from the Million Dollar 
Jubilee Fund, this appropriation to cover a period of five years. The work of the station is 
largely that of research along the lines of eugenics, mental abilities, and individual differences, 
and an investigation in anthropometry of some 40,000 children from two to twelve years of age 
in nine characteristic sections of the state. 

Another interesting part of the station concerns the study of nutrition carried on at the Chil- 
dren's Hospital. Those in charge aim to determine by experiments with animals and children, 
the proper diets for various types of normal children. In the rat room, there is cage after cage 
of rats, white ones and spotted ones; clever rats and stupid rats, all used for experimental pur- 

tAking measurements in the laboratory 

poses of feeding. In addition there will be found numerous cages of guinea pigs and pigeons, 
all used for the same purpose. The results of these investigations in the interest of the normal 
child are finally published to the country at large by the university. 

The Iowa Child Welfare Research Station is still in its infancy. Already it has gained a 
foothold and a national reputation through its work and the work of Director Baldwin. At 
best, the future is but mere speculation, sure of but one thing, and that, the filling of a long felt 
need of scientific research in this great field of child welfare.

HE School of Music came this year under the direction of Dr. Philip Greeley Clapp, 
who assumed the responsibilities of head of the School of Music as successor to 
Professor W. E. Hays. Students really interested in the study of music, either from 
the standpoint of knowing music simply for its own sake as one of the things which 
makes life more worth while, or from the professional standpoint, find ample opportunity 
at Iowa to gain just the musical training they desire. The present departments of 
the school offer work in piano, voice, violin, organ, and theoretics. Strong emphasis is laid 
upon training in appreciation — appreciation of the best in musical compositions in much the 
same manner as the professor of English strives to train an appreciation for the best in good 
literature. In order to further the regular class work, such extra-curricular activities as glee 

clubs for men and women, a volunteer orchestra and a band are supported by the School of Music 
in a very effective manner. The keenest rivalry is manifested in obtaining places in the various 
organizations. Doctor Clapp has often expressed the need for a big chorus at Iowa, but this 
year there has been no attempt made to organize an oratorio society. Furthermore, Doctor 
Clapp has in mind for next year the organization of many small groups of embryo artists who 
will prepare themselves for public and private performances. Such an arrangement will give 
the students a more immediate aim and will serve as a spur to their every day work and practice. 

The School of Music is now seriously handicapped by unsatisfactory quarters, but present 
plans aim to relieve this as soon as practicable. A well equipped, thoroughly modern building 
is the most pressing need felt by faculty and students, for with the studios scattered about in 
two or three different buildings, many obvious inconveniences arise. A genuine studio atmos- 
phere has, however, been created, reflected by the particular teacher of each room. The new 
Iowa Memorial Union is expected to possess an organ which will then be at the disposal of 
the School of Music. 

The interest shown by the students and faculty members, as well as the material gains in 
prospect, has worked effectively to create the brightest outlook the school has ever had. Iowa 
has every reason to be proud of the work that has been done to make this department of the 
College of Liberal Arts take and hold its place with similar departments in other universities 
of the country.

STABLISHED in 1868, and starting with a one-year course, it was not until 1884 that 
the Law College extended its requirements to a two-year schedule. The time up to 
1900, when this article opens, had been a formulative period for the college and a time 
of great teachers, that date marking the time when the three-year course was introduced 
and adopted. During the score of years here covered, progressive steps have been 
taken and many changes have come about in the entrance and graduation requirements 
along with a broadening of the course of study, a changing attitude on the part of the student 
body and the development of the Iowa Law Bulletin, so far as it reflects progress in the legal 
study at this University. 

Before 1900 any high school graduate was admitted in attendance to the Jaw school, but the 
sentiment of the bar associations of the state was, at that time, that the requirements for admission 
to the bar should be raised from two years legal study to three, and with this came the 
coincidence that changed the period of study at the University to the three-year period also. 
The first class graduating under these provisions was in 1902. During the period following, it 

became evident that the lawyer, to compete successfully in his profession, must be well trained 
in other subjects besides the law. So it was that in 1913 the University announced, through the 
College of Law, that one year of liberal arts work would be required of entrants, and that this 
would be increased to two years on the opening of school the following fall. This is still the 
requirement, and many students take as many as three years in the liberal arts college. 

Of the present faculty of the College of Law, Professor Wilcox is the only one to have seen 
the changes that have come in the last decades. Dean Dudley O. McGovney assumed the lead- 
ership of the college in 1916, Prof. H. Claude Horack having become a member of the faculty 
since 1907, Prof. Percy Bordwell since 1908, Prof. Herbert F. Goodrich since 1915, and Prof. 
Rollin E. Perkins since 1916. The latest addition to the faculty is Prof. M. A. Randall. These 
seven men make up today's law faculty, where in 1900 five resident lawyers were caring for 
the instruction. 

Together with the changes in the entrance requirements, perhaps as great and as marked a 
change has been in the development of the course of study, making one of the main steps in the 
progress of the College of Law in the last last two decades. This period from 1900 to 1920 has 
seen the course of study meet the most modern requirements. The college was one of the earliest 
to adopt the case method of instruction, due largely to Judge Emlin McClain, whose memory will 
ever be revered in the school, was one of the pioneers in this movement and who was particularly 
influential in its adoption at the University of Iowa. In 1902 there was a tendency pronounced 
to get away from the text-book method, but it was not wholly accomplished. Many of the 
principal courses were taught from text-books, such as Cooley on Torts, and Keeler on Contracts. 
The courses of this two-decade period have progressed to a place where they are better co- 
ordinated and more thoroughly worked out for presentation to the student. The case book system 
is now completely established as a method of study and has wholly supplanted the text-book 
system. In the main, the subject matter of the courses is practically the same as it was before 
1900, the more recent phases of the law being emphasized. The study of Conflict of Laws and 
of Quasi Contracts has been introduced as thoroughly modern subjects presented in their modern 
aspect, and the growing development of corporations and public utilities has given rise to the 
study of Public Service Business and the Interstate Commerce Act. Together with the latter 
subject, the constitutionality of the commerce act and of interstate commerce is now dealt with in 
the courses on Constitutional Law. 

Classes now extend over the entire day, while in the early part of the period there were lectures 
only in the forenoon, the students at that time carrying two subjects for a five-week period and 
then submitted to an examination. A maximum of ten hours w T ith nothing but required work 
was the order of the day. With the three-year course more time was given for the courses and 
greater thoroughness was at once emphasized in fundamental subjects. Classes were distributed 
throughout the w : eek, and none given daily. Slowly, more subjects were added to the schedule 
until at the present time there are numerous elective courses offered over and above those re- 
quired for graduation. Notable among the more modern courses, and those dealing particularly 
with the law of Iowa, is the course in Practice Court and the Administration of Decedent's Estates. 
The course in Practice Court gives the student lawyer actual court room procedure under the 
direction of an experienced practitioner and members of the faculty. These courses show a 
progression in the line of specialization, and the changes in the course of study since 1900 have 
all been forward. 

Along with the change in the plan of instruction and the lines of study has been a progression 
in the attitude of the student body as emphasized by their class room work and their interest in 
the building of the College of Law. Any professor in the college who is approached on this 
subject of progress will give this as an outstanding commentary on the period. Since 1902, the 
question of discipline in the class room has become an anomaly, and while this may seem to 
convey more or less humor, it is, nevertheless, a fact that at one time the question of order while 
in class was marked. The erection of the splendid law building, completed in 1910, gave the 
student body an interest in something their own and something that they took pride in preserving. 

Accordingly, there was an increase in the standard of work required and a new attitude towards 
study. Not entirely, however, did this come about unconsciously, but rather through the de- 
termined and concerted action on the part of the faculty. The credibility of work was raised, 
and with this stiffening of the grade of satisfactory work came the progressive steps, moving 
faster, probably, during the period from 1907 to 1913. Students had never entered into discussion 
of the cases, but were merely listeners to the lectures as prepared by the professors, and the 
keeping of note books with the course was also launched and used for the first time. Individual 
abstracts of cases prepared by each student were required and is now most obvious among the 
entire student personnel. 

As an additional exemplification of the progressive steps taken by the students, there was 
organized in March of 1915, the Iowa Law Students Association for the promotion of the col- 
lective interests of the law students and the College of Law. The responsibility for the welfare 
of the college exceeds that found in any other student bodies. A fine spirit of enthusiasm pre- 
dominates. This association has presented two "Law Jubilees" which have been recognized 
dramatical productions of merit in the University. To this organization is also entrusted the 
responsibility for the students in and about the law building and for the care of the building 
and property. Founded in the precedent of former students, the present attendants in the College 
of Law have a standard of ability set for them and worthy of their highest aspiration. 

Coming with the progression in the attitude of the law students has been the development of 
the loiva Law Bulletin — an Iowa magazine for Iowa lawyers. This publication was started 
in its new series in 1915 and has now become a regular periodical for the student of law at the 
University and the practicing lawyers over the state. It is published by the faculty of the 
college assisted by honor students and its policy is to present to the lawyer and student the law 
of Iowa scientifically worked out. The Law library comprising 24,000 volumes is a constant 
source of reference for students and professors in the preparation of their articles. This library 
covers the entire top floor of the building and is most complete in every respect. It contains the 
Hammond Memorial library, copies of the English Year Books and translations of Bracton's Com- 
mentaries, and a collection of Blackstone's Commentaries. 

As a period of progress and advancement, the time covered from 1900 to 1920 has been pre- 
eminent. Each new step that has been taken has led to advancements in the courses of study 
and the methods of preparation. They have likewise been accompanied by greater student 
activity and enthusiasm and evidenced by co-operative faculty and student accomplishments. 


The loiua Laiv Bulletin made is first appearance in 1891. It was then a thin pamphlet, edited 
by the faculty of the College of Law, and containing synopsis, outlines, and references, problems 
and hypothetical questions on the various branches of the common law. Its publication was 
continued in that form until 1901, when it ceased publication entirely. 

Publication was resumed in January, 1915. It was, however, a resumption in name only, for 
the new series is so entirely different from the old that it can hardly be said to be a continuance. 
Edited by the faculty and students, with Prof. Herbert F. Goodrich in charge, its space is de- 
voted to articles discussing present day legal problems, and to notes and discussions of recent 
cases. Its field is not that of the whole body of common law, but is restricted to the law of Iowa; 
subject matter for notes and Recent Cases being taken from current decisions in the Nortliiuestern 

Compelled to temporarily suspend publication in November, 1918, because of the absence of 
members of the faculty and student body in the country's service, the publication was resumed 
in November, 1919, and with the exception of this brief suspension the Bulletin has regularly 
appeared four times a year since 1915. It is issued in January, March, May, and November, and 
is distributed to the members of the bar of the State of Iowa. 

The purpose of the Iowa Law Bulletin is to present the law of the State of Iowa. It is not 
intended to expand into a larger field and if it shall give practical assistance or material service 
to students, and to members of the bar of the State of Iowa, its ambition and purpose will be 


HE Big Event" of the year for the law school was staged at the Englert Theatre on the 
11th of March, when the third annual Jubilee was presented before a capacity house. 
In spite of the wailings of those who were unable to secure tickets on account of the 
limited number of seats, the show was a huge success. It was the unanimous opinion 
of the audience that this year's show was even better than the two preceding ones. 
Many old favorites enlarged their popularity and were warmly welcomed by the 
audience on their appearance; and the new stars from the Freshman class received their share of 
applause. "The Big Event", a one-act play written by Kroppach, Goodrich and Rosson, opened 
the Jubilee. The scene was laid in the railroad station of a country village on the morn- 
ing that Andy and Myrtle Mae Higgenbotham left their native pastures for Iowa City. 
The village citizenry turned out to offer a few final words of advice concerning the great 
University the village prides were to attend. Judge Otto Waide remarked, concerning Andy's 
studv of law: "Nevah neglect the study of Whetstone — I mean, Blackstone." The village con- 
stable was absolutely "agin it", because Andy was big enough to follow a plow; but if he must 
go to the University, he should not listen to any of that thunder of Dr. Wassam's, nor get into 
any of Professor Nabisco's commercial courses. 

Mrs. Gushmore took it upon herself to settle Myrtle's sorority problems, but found it difficult 
because the Kappas were such Bolsheviks and the Pi Phis consorted with the Sigma Nus; the 
Tri Delts, however, were authorities on complexion, and the Alpha Chis never kept rules. 
Reverend Uriah Peablossom, the town Polonius, offered a few precepts which were of a whole- 
some and God-fearing colour. Leland Fairbanks, Jr., breezed in just before train time, having 
made a special effort to get up early to give Andy a few tips. He was to stay away from 
Reinow's penitentiary, the Dormitory, and go right down to Kirk's and Hungerford's academv 
and let them start him right through to all the pipe courses. The interest here centered on Punch 
Dunkle, who passed out cards advertising the shows at the Pastime, and helped Judge Waide 
put his coat on. The curtain came down on a mad scramble for the 11:34. The following is 
the cast of characters:

The audience applauded the beautiful setting and costumes of the second act. The scene, 
""The Great Outdoors", showed a roadside Gypsy camp well set off by special scenery and light- 
ing effects. An odds and ends orchestra of strolling musicians around a glowing campfire 
played dreamy music while Gypsies sang over their cards. Harry Miller's wonderful tenor well 
deserved the enthusiastic applause which it received when he sang "Roses of Picardy". The 
following numbers were given in this act: 

"Venetian Moon", "Roses of Picardy", "Among the Roses", "Berceuse-Jocelyn", "Ruspana", and 
•closed with C. E. Hamilton's "Gypsy Dance". 

The minstrel part of the Jubilee came in the third act. The scene was laid in a club room, 
where, in response to an idle wish, the King of Melody Land appeared and with him the 
chorus in grand opera costume. Then came the end men from the wings, and to the tune 
of "Oh, the Laws", the jubilee was on. The next number was, "You Never Can Tell", and was 
so good that Mr. Michels had to sing it a second time. Then followed "great gobs of pertinent, 
pointed, pithy, and personal gags," to quote the dramatic critic of the Iowa City Daily Press. 
These were cleverly handled by the black-face comedians, Kroppach, Goodrich, Fisher, Cooper, 
Michels, and Hollingsworth. Art Kroppach was, as usual, the leading spirit of this section, but 
Eddie Goodrich proved a close competitor in the business of ladling out the latest slams against 
ihe commerce school, the law faculty, and other necessary evils. No one was spared. Goodrich 

gave Benny Shambaugh the edge on the dean for good looks, and Art was of the opinion that 
although we would not live longer under prohibition, it would seem longer. Art couldn't give 
the number of Tau Delt pledges off hand, for he hadn't been out to the house since noon. "Mother, 
I'm Wild", by Carl M. Fisher, was a great success. Fisher wrote the words for this piece and 
also executed the cover design for the program. In token of the esteem of his fellow-blackfaces, 
he was decorated with a Croix de Bermuda. Kroppach's songs, "How She Can Dance" and 
"You Cannot Make Your Shimmy Shake on Tea", scored a tremendous hit. 

The success of the production was largely due to the painstaking efforts and able directing of 
H. E. Rosson, president of the Law School Students' Association. Mr. Rosson wrote a large part 
of the play, and spent much time in Minneapolis and Chicago arranging for costumes, scenery, 
and lighting effects. As co-authors of the first act, Goodrich and Kroppach proved their ability 
as clever writers and clever comedians. To John J. Foarde goes the credit for the success of the 
music. His ability and careful work was shown by the way the musical numbers were received. 



Among the most ancient and respected of the honorary professional fraternities is the Order 
of the Coif, originally composed of English lawyers and judges, the inner circle of all the bench 
and bar of England, and dating back to the oldest of the English courts "to which the memory 
of man runneth not to the contrary". From these men, the most eminent of the legal profession, 
were chosen the judges of the courts of Common Pleas, King's Bench, and the Exchequer. This 
organization included only the most learned members of the profession, its membership seldom 
exceeding fifty, and upon its rolls appear the names of such famous men as Glanville, Coke, 
Littleton, and Blackstone. 

The Order of Coif was first established as a national organization in the United States by 
the consolidation of two local honorary legal fraternities — Theta Kappa Nu, founded at the 
University of Illinois in 1902, and a society called "The Order of Coif", established five years 
later at Northwestern. The two organizations were founded for the purpose of promoting high 
scholarship in the study of law and to further this purpose, the two societies, in 1911, united to 
form a national organization, taking the name of the "Order of Coif". Today there are chapters 
in sixteen American law schools. 

As now organized among the colleges of the United States, membership in the fraternity is 
nased upon character and scholarship. Its purpose is to promote the study of law and encourage 
learning and effort, and membershiD is limited to those students who have shown particular 
distinction in their work. New members are chosen each year by the faculty of the college, and 
only those students of the third year who rank in the highest tenth of their class are eligible. 
Election to the society is equivalent to graduation with distinction.

HE Law School Students' Association was first organized in 1914, basing its claims to 
recognition upon the principles of self government, and since that time it has ably 
maintained itself, being used as a model for the present University Student Council. 
To this organization is entrusted the behavior of all students in and about the law 
building, and every student automatically becomes a member upon enrollment. The 
nominal fee of one dollar is charged as a membership fee, and this money so collected is 
used in many ways for the benefit of the association as a whole. A lounging and smoking room 
has been fitted with appropriate furniture in one of the spare rooms on the first floor, and it is in 
this "Bull Pen", as it has been dubbed, largely because of the many contests that take on 
the Mexican athletic aspect, that important questions of local and international interest are daily 
threshed over and diplomatically settled. 

The highest sort of conduct and decorum is observed by all members, and cases of discipline 
are a thing of the past. The association is a democratic organization, based upon a sound 
representative system. Every member of the college quickly becomes imbued with the spirit of 
the organization and gives his best active support; and the power of guidance is never usurped 
by any crafty or unscrupulous ring of political jockeys. Neither the chronic politician nor the 
slacker are tolerated, for the voters make it their business to learn what it is the association needs 
and wants before helping themselves. Officers are selected in open conventions by nominations 
and secret ballot, and become the servants and not the masters of the body. 

The Law School Students' Association has been in operation for five years. When the under- 
graduate body of the campus cast about them for a model upon which to base their self govern- 
ment, this association presented that model. Its influence has been profound in its sphere and its 
so high among like institutions in the country, it is indeed fitting that embryonic barristers be 
working always for the betterment of the college wherein it operates. In a law college that ranks 
given that training in self government and representative administration.

HE College of Medicine of the State University of Iowa occupies a high rank among 
its fellows throughout the country. It stands as a credit to the University and to the 
state, not only because of its scholastic standards, but also because of the service it 
renders to the people of Iowa. 

On September 17, 1868, the trustees of the University of Iowa passed resolutions 
recommending the establishment of a medical school. In June of the same year, the 
plans were matured and the faculty, consisting of ten members, was selected although no 

money as yet had been appropriated for the salaries of the faculty members. Never-the-less, 
these men in the true spirit of service, agreed to open the school and to continue it until land 
grants should provide the necessary funds. 

Old South Hall was the first home of this school, and here, in the winter of 1869-1870 the 
first classes were held. The student body of the college numbered at this time, thirty-nine, 
eight of which were women. Indeed, Iowa was the first medical school in the United States 
to admit women students to its classes upon equal footing with the men. The requirements 
for a degree of Doctor of Medicine prescribed that one must be of legal age, be of good moral 
character and have attended two courses of lectures for sixteen consecutive weeks and the 
first degrees were awarded in 1871 to a class of sixteen members, four of them women. 

A building formerly occupied by the Mechanics Academy provided the first hospital facilities 
and was under the charge of the Sisters of Mercy from 1870 to 1872. Then the new Mercy 
Hospital was built and at the same time a Medical laboratory was erected at the south end of 
the present Liberal Arts campus. This laboratory was destroyed by fire March 9, 1901, following 
which the present laboratory buildings were constructed. The present University Hospital first 
opened its doors to patients, January 1, 1898. 

It is a far cry from the first make-shift buildings and the short course of the early times 
to the modern equipment and the extensive curriculum of today. For now, classes are held 
in well equipped modern laboratories and hospitals, and facilities are offered to the student 
to help him in the proper pursuance of his work such as were undreamed of by those early 

The present school buildings consist of the Hall of Anatomy, Chemistry Hall, a Medical 
Laboratories building, and the various University Hospital buildngs. The plan is to eventually 
have the entire medical school and all the hospitals across the river, and in pursuance of this 
policy, such new buildings as are being constructed are being placed there. 

The present medical course consists of four years work in the medical college proper, 
preceded by at least two years preparatory work in the College of Liberal Arts. This prepara- 
tory work contains prescribed courses and the course is so arranged that at the end of the 
sophomore medical year the student may receive the degree of Bachelor of Science; or if 
he has taken three years of preparatory work, Degree of Bachelor of Arts. Upon completing 
the required four years of medical work the degree of Doctor of Medicine is attained. 
Courses are also offered after giaduntion leading to a Master's Degree. 

According to the State law, all graduates after the year 1921 will be required to have at 
least one year interneship in some hospital before being allowed to practice within the state, 
This law, however, works no hardship upon graduates from Iowa for it has been their 
usual custom to take such hospital work voluntarily. Interneships are offered by this school 
in the departments of Internal Medicine, Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Opthalmology, 
Oto-Laryngology and Oral Surgery, Pediatrics and Orthopedics. 

The College of Medicine at Iowa, as ranked by the American Medical Association is 
placed at grade A; — -a distinction granted only to those medical schools of exceptional 
merit and due only to the high standards of scholarship set by the faculty plus the ample 
clinical material presented to the student. The combined hospitals of the University present 
the second largest number of teaching beds offered in the United States. In the medical 
course at Iowa, the student not only receives thorough grounding in the theories and principles 
underlying his work, but also has a chance to gain a working knowledge of the practical 
side of the profession. During junior and senior years students see cases demonstrated in 
clinic and ward walk, and are also assigned to the actual care of the cases themselves. In 
handling cases students are required to obtain the proper history, make the necessary physical 
and laboratory examinations and to follow the case carefully until the patient is discharged 
from the hospital. Then too, students are required to assist in the various outpatient clinics 
at operations and in giving anesthetics, and so gain a knowledge of the actual technical 
work of the profession. 

Besides the place which the College of Medicine occupies in the scholastic way, it offers 
other contributions to the life of the university as a whole. In the field of athletics, men from 
the College of Medicine have always, as a rule, occupied a prominent place. Very few 
if any Iowa teams of recent years have been minus a few medics to liven things up a bit. 
During the past year Captain Fred Lohman, all-conference fullback, Harry Hunzelman, second 
all-conference guard, and Block, varsity tackle, ably represented Iowa upon the gridiron. Further, 
Roy Jenson, also a medic, captains the varsity wrestlers that have so creditably acquitted themselves. 
Besides these the College of Medicine is literally full of men who have played their full time 
upon various athletic teams. 

Besides class organizations there are three fraternities that draw their membership from 
medical students. These professional fraternities are Phi Beta Pi, Nu Sigma Nu, and Phi Rho 
Sigma. In addition to these organizations honorary fraternities are also represented, such as 
Phi Beta Kappa and more especially Sigma Xi. 

The faculty consists of a large corps of instructors and lecturers under the leadership of the 
various heads of departments. The growth of the school has been steady and impressive ; and 
juding the future by the past the school should continue to grow and develop and to gain an even 
greater place than it holds today among kindred institutions of the world. 


Under the provisions of the Perkins Law, Section 254—255, the Acts of the 35th General 
Assembly, all children who are under the age of sixteen, and are in need of medical or 
surgical service are treated at state expense, providing their parents or those responsible for 
their support are unable to pay for the necessary mdical or surgical care. 

This law has proved an inestimable boon to many poor children of the state, for through 
its provisions many such have been aided in their struggle for health and strength. Naturally 
cases of all kinds came under the provisions of the Perkins Law, but probably the greater 
proportion of them are confined to the Orthopedic Department under the charge of Doctor 
Steindler, an authority in this line of work. 


Orthopedic wards were formerly housed in the west-wing of the main University Hospital 
building, but these quarters soon became inadequate. Accordingly the State Legislature appro- 
priated $150,000 in 1917 for the erection of a modern Orthopedic hospital, and this building 
was constructed on Folsom Heights on the West Side overlooking the Iow T a River. One of 
the finest of its kind throughout the country, it houses both the Orthopedic Department under 
Dr. Steindler, and the Department of Pediatrics under Dr. Byfield. With a capacity of one 
hundred and fifty beds, it is a model of its kind, so arranged that all of the wards are upon 
one floor. Besides these, the hospital contains diet kitchens, operating rooms, laboratories and 
work-shops where special devices such as braces, casts etc., are developed and constructed. 

In addition to this new hospital, there is also a convelescents' home for the "Perkins 
Children", and now an additional hospital is being constructed from a building formerly 
used as a Nurses' Home. This last named hospital will contain twenty-five beds and will 
be for the care of the eye, ear, nose and throat patients. 

With these additions, it is thought that the facilities for caring for the great mass of 
clinical cases provided by the Perkins Law will be adequate to the demands made upon them 
by this ever increasing branch of work. 

The importance of this field can scarcely be over estimated. A great amount of clinical 
material is not only provided for the medical school, but what is even more important many 
who otherwise would be hopelessly sick or crippled are enabled to become healthy and useful 


The University Hospital is the largest general hospital in the State of Iowa, and one of 
the largest clinical hospitals of the country. Besides the main hospital building containing 
346 beds, an isolation hospital of 45 beds, an annex of 40 beds, a children's hospital of 150 
beds, an additional children's hospital for eye, ear, nose and throat patients, and a convalescent 
home for children, the State Tuberculosis Sanatarium at Oakdale is also included. Further, a 
new Psychopathic Hospital is to be erected at an approximate cost of $200,000. 

Under the Perkins Act, free care at the Hospital of the Medical College of the State 
University of Iowa is provided for all children under sixteen years of age, whose parents or 
guardians are unable to pay for medical or surgical care. Under Chapter 78, Acts of the 
38th General Assembly, the provisions of a similar act are extended to include patients over 
sixteen years of age. 

The following classes, according to directions of the Iowa State Boards of Education are 
to be considered eligible for admission to the University Hospital. 

1. All persons bearing letters to the Superintendent, from their usual medical or 
dental attendant, recommending their admission. 

2. Patients sent on an order from the Superintendent of the Poor, Supervisor, or 
city official authorized to issue each order. 

3. Persons bringing letters from members of the clergy. 

4. Emergency cases. 

5. All students in actual attendance at the University. 

6. Persons not included in any of the five classes above named who will make an 
affidavit that they are unable to pay the usual minimum fee of the profession 
for such medical or surgical treatment, as they may require. 

Clinical cases are handled by the various heads of departments, each a specialist in 
some department. The men who handle the clinics include Drs. Dean, Howard, Whiteis, 
Reed, Kessler, Alcock, Van Epps, Byfield, Steindler and Royal. Patients at these clinics receive 
the best diagnosis and treatment and the medical student is afforded cases as they are actually 
presented. So it is that the University Hospital offers a distinct service to the state both as 
a factor in combating disease and assisting in the training of embryo physicians and nurses.

The year's events which this volume chronicles will include no more brilliant achievement 
than those that make up the history of the university's Training School for Nurses. In this busy 
world of vicious commercialism the tendency is to take note only of progress as expressed in 
terms of material wealth. Our daily press tells how large industrial institutions are eclipsing all 
former records, all their progress being expressed in dollars mounting into the millions. Our 
appetites have been whetted for the seven digit column and anything less intoxicating precipitates 
an ingrowing feeling of abject ennui. 

Refreshing it is, however, to know that there is still another spirit somewhere in the world, — a 
spirit that is also progressing. The Nurses' Training School of the State University of Iowa is 
a notable proof that all are not money mad, — that there are women of Iowa who think more of 
ennobling service to mankind than of wealth. Their enrollment in the school is the proof positive 
that the satisfactions of entering a glorious profession and the soul compensations of making 
sacrifices are ample impetus for useful lives. Animated by such high motives these young women 
of Iowa are studying nursing as a profession, and to them is due the credit for the substantial 
growth that has attended this department of the university. 

The present training school was organized in 1898, offering a two years' course. In 1900, five 
nurses were enrolled for study, and in 1902 the course was increased to three years, all fields of 
medicine being amply covered by an enlarged and standardized curriculum. In the summer of 
1918 the university conducted its initial summer preparatory school of twelve weeks, preparing 
many young women for the technical duties of hospital work. This innovation started the 
plans for five years of training, combining the collegiate and professional courses so that students 
could receive both a B. S. degree and a nurse's certificate upon graduation. The first three years 
of the course as at present constituted cover the entire field of laboratory work, while the last 
two years include the actual practice of nursing, the experience, both practical and theoretical, 
being obtained in the University Hospital. 

Plans for the future of the training school are growing each day. The new isolation hospital, 
recently finished and now fully equipped, is in working order, as is the new Perkins Children 
Hospital, situated across the river. These two special, plus the main hospital, offer to the nurse 
a wonderful field for experience and in the near future the psychopathic hospital will enlarge the 
present scope of the school. The work in theory is given by medical lecturers, and the nurses 
are housed about the campus in numerous dwellings, only one of which can really be called a 
Nurses' Dormitory. The actual work is under the supervision of Miss Haarer, and for the most 
part the courses begin in the early part of January instead of the opening of the school year. 

The record of the training school during the war is a bit of the really wonderful history of the 
department. The national need was ever uppermost and the contribution made by the school 

T i ) 



ranks as one of the superlative records of Iowa's war history. There were forty-six graduate 
nurses in the army nursing corps. On June 10, 1918, the first unit was called to Camp Dodge, 
and later six of that number went over seas. On September 22, 1918, the second unit was called 
into the service and assigned to the emergency work of handling influenza at the Great Lakes 
Naval Training Station. This service was performed through the Red Cross, and within twenty- 
four hours after the call for volunteers was issued, five thousand nurses from all over the land 
offered their services. 

In memory of Miss Ella Noring, who died while in the midst of overseas duty, and in the 
memory of five who gaves their lives in the training school during the epidemic of influenza, we 
would pay profound tribute. Their noble sacrifice speaks eloquently of the high service to which 
they had dedicated their lives. There were no casualties in the home camps. 

The present enrollment of the school is one hundred eighty-four. Each semester has shown 
encouraging numerical growth. The school has justified existence from its inception, and judging 
its future by the splendid past we have a promise that the "best is yet to be".

1HE first movement to establish the teaching of dentistry in the State University of Iowa 
took place on June 18, 1873, when a committee of dentists requested the Board of 
Regents to create a chair of Dentistry in connection with the teaching of medicine in 
the medical department. This, however, resulted in a failure. 

A second effort was made in 1881, and notwithstanding the failure of the General 
Assembly to comply with their suggestions, the Board of Regents authorized, in 1882, 
the opening of a Dental Department on condition that it be self-supporting, the University 
agreeing to provide suitable rooms for its use. These "suitable rooms" consisted of one room in 
the southwest corner of the medical building; and it was also made clear that whoever composed 
the faculty must look to fees for compensation. 

In April, 1882, the Board of Regents announced the first session to open on the 11th day of 
October, and to continue for twenty weeks. Dr. L. C. Ingersoll was appointed the first dean of 
this department, and was given three assistants. Enough work was accomplished during the first 
year of the dental department's existence to warrant the conferring in 1883 of the degree of 
D. D. S. to a class of eight men. The course of two years was soon changed to three years, of 
six school months, this change taking place at the beginning of the third session. The first year 
of dentistry could be substituted by five years experience as an assistant in a dental office. 

The second location of the department was in the basement and first floor of the old South Hall, 
a three-story brick structure south of the Old Capitol building. Here the department was housed 
from 1883 to 1893. The equipment was exceedingly poor and students were compelled to work 
under conditions which now seem comparatively ludicrous and almost impossible. Eighteen chairs, 
four of which were dental and the remainder antiquated barbers' chairs, supplied a class of fifty 
students, and system was conspicuous by its absence. No chairs were assigned to individuals, the 
principle of first come first served reigning supreme. Instruments were carried around in small 
hand cases and each student carried his supplies around in his pocket. 

The department, in 1893, became self-supporting, having an enrollment of one hundred and fifty- 
one students. This remarkable progress called for more room, necessitating a further expenditure. 
One of two things could be done: repair the old building or build a new one. The latter alter- 


native was accepted and a twenty-five thousand dollar structure was provided, while the course 
was changed to a three-year course of nine months each, with twenty-two additional instructors 
and assistants. 

The old Hall of Dentistry was designed to accommodate two hundred students, but soon an 
increased enrollment required the utilization of the space between the wings to the rear of the 
main structure. In spite of the increasing demands of the department of higher entrance require- 
ments and more extensive courses of study, the enrollment constantly increased, until new and 
more modern quarters were absolutely necessary. 

This need was realized in 1915, when the General Assembly appropriated sufficient funds to 
build a new structure which in size, convenience, and equipment is second to none in the United 

The new- Hall of Dentistry is a magnificent building of five stories, the structure measuring 
176 feet in length and 84 feet in width, giving a floor space of 55,000 square feet, — ■ sufficient to 
accommodate three hundred and fifty students. The total expenditure amounted to $170,000, 
entirely exclusive of equipment and fixtures, which alone approximate $100,000. 

The sub-basement floor contains special laboratory rooms for research work, while the ground 
floor is given a large laboratory for the freshman class, with accommodations for one hundred 
and sixty students, a lecture room with a seating capacity of two hundred seventy-six, a library, 
and a supplv room. The main floor is on a level with the street entrance and contains the offices 
of administration, faculty, a general office and an information bureau. The remaining space will 
be occupied by a large laboratory for junior operatives and prosthetic technique. 

The fourth floor is occupied by the infirmary, measuring 150 feet by 60 feet and having a 
ceiling height of 21 feet. Ample floor space is here provided for the care of one hundred forty 
patients at one time and the inside walls are to be of gray marble and floors covered with 
battleship linoleum. Other conveniently arranged rooms are the offices for the clerks of the 
infirmary, a sterilizing room, rooms for clinical orthodontia, and those for crown and bridge, 
prosthetic laboratory, a rest and reception room. 

From the top floor, which is finished in mezzanine, a fine full view of the infirmary can be 
obtained. The floor extends around the infirmary and includes rooms for operating, oral surgery, 
nurses, anesthetics and sterilization, clinical bacteriology, ceramics, and prosthetics. The con- 
veniences for the entire building are the best that can be secured. Everything in the way of 
lighting, heating, ventilation, and sanitation has been designed in accordance with the most 
modern principles. The vacuum system will be used on every floor. 

The equipment is also of the very best. One hundred forty S. S. White new diamond dental 
chairs were placed in the infirmary, and these chairs all have the equipment unit consisting of 
spiral flush spittoons, aseptic bracket tables, attachments for compressed air, water, gas, electric 
light and engine. The completion of the new Hall of Dentistry marks the department as one 
of the best equipped and highest rated colleges in the United States. 

Dr. Frank T. Breene, the present dean of the College of Dentistry, was chosen to fill that 
position in February, 1914. A graduate from the College of Dentistry in 1888, and from the 
College of Medicine in 1893, he was appointed Lecturer in Dentistry in 1889, Professor of Clinical 
Dentistry came in 1890, and in 1896 was made Professor of Operative Dentistry and Therapeutics, 
the position he now holds, together with the Deanship of the College.

HE College of Pharmacy was established in 1885 and is today recognized as one of the 
leading colleges in this part of the country. A thorough and complete course is offered 
in the field of pharmacy and chemistry, and high and exacting entrance and graduation 
requirements are maintained. The courses are so arranged that no preparatory work 
is required, and the degree Ph. G. may be attained after two years prescribed work, 
while at the close of an additional year the advanced degree, Ph. C, is conferred. 
At present the college finds itself crowded for space to handle the enrollment. There is a 
noticeable lack of laboratory and locker room, although the old dining hall of the S. A. T. C. days 
and also Close Hall have been pressed into service. It is hoped, however, that a new 
building with more modern and better laboratories and equipment will soon be at the disposal 
of the students of the college, for the chemistry department is very much in need of such a 

building. Indications are that the enrollment will not decrease, for Iowa attracts many students 
from other states, and the pharmaceutical field is ever broadening. 

The present year has been a banner one for the college in every way. Many men have 
returned from the service with a desire to enter this field, and the junior class alone numbers 
well over forty, including nine women. The faculty proper numbers eighteen, not including the 
medical college staff that at times lectures before the classes. These are all under the supervision 
of Dean Wilbur J. Teeters, who has been associated with the college since 1891, and dean since 
1895. During that time the college has made great strides forward. One of the interesting 
things in connection to the college of today is that all the drugs now used in the university 
hospitals are manufactured in the college laboratories. During the war, when aspirin went to 
the unheard of price of about thirty dollars a pound, these college laboratories at once began to 
fill the demand of the hospitals. In a similar fashion all the needed solutions, tablets, anaesthetics, 
soaps, and prescriptions are also furnished, and a registered pharmacist is on duty at the hospital 
full time to care for the drugs. 

This unique system was first instituted at Dean Teeters' suggestion, and he personally assumed 
the responsibility. All mixings are checked three times before going together to guard against 
mistakes, and to date a wonderful record of no mistakes whatever has been maintained. As a 
valuable method of instruction, this plan places additional responsibility on the students, making 
them realize the fatality of a single little mistake, and as a saving for the university it would 
be hard to estimate. 

Trained druggists are always in demand, and with the enrollment growing larger each year 
it will not be long before new quarters will be an absolute necessity. When the new building 
will come can only be surmised, but already plans are made for it, and certainly it is not 
far ahead.

The College of Applied Science owes its origin to an effort to concentrate the engineering 
schools of the state at Ames. This movement, which took place in 1904, was defeated by Iowa 
Alumni and the Board of Regents, who later organized an engineering school in the College of 
Liberal Arts, with the late Prof. L. G. Weld as director. At that time the legislature appropriated 
$50,000 for an engineering building and $10,000 for the construction of a dam to utilize the 
mill power given to the school by Mr. Euclid Sanders. The Department of Engineering was 
re-organized in the fall of 1904, and Prof. William G. Rajmond was placed in charge of the 
courses. The following May saw this organization converted into what now bears the name 
of The College of Applied Science, and Professor Raymond was made dean. The first class 
graduated, 1906, numbered fifteen, and the college today attests the growth that has followed 
since that first class was awarded diplomas. 

Many are the changes that have taken place since those early days. The first home of the College 
was a wooden building that stood slightly east of the present Physics building, and built by the 
students themselves on the foundation of Old South Hall, which had been destroyed by fire. 
In the basement of this building the "old-timers" tinkered with the drill press, lathe, and portable 
forge, — the three pieces that composed the principal apparatus of the first shops. The remainder 
of the equipment consisted of two transits, two levels, a tetting machine, two small generators, 
and a small steam engine. 

Plans for a new building to house the college in were presented in the fall of 1904, and the 
site of the structure was to be the complete square bounded by College, Washington, Madison, 
and Capitol streets. Work was soon under way on the first section, the front half of the present 
building, and this was completed and occupied in February of 1906. But this 
section was soon outgrown and in a couple of years a second such section was 
added, bringing the building to its present state of completion. The dam and 

I the hydro-electric plant were completed in October, 1906, and the steam lab- 
oratory was ready some six months later. No further additions to the college 
have been made except for the construction of the shops, in 1910, and the 
hydraulic testing laboratory, completed last fall. 
Professors and courses come and go; B. J. Lambert is still with us. He was 
here as a young instructor when Dean Raymond and Professor Woodward 
came into the West, in 1904. These three composed the entire instructional 
and administra- 
tive staff of the 
college at its be- 
ginning, but the 
next year Profes- 
sors Higbee and 
Ford were added 
Professors Dunlap 
and Keller came 
to the college in 
1909, and Profes- 
sors Fleming, 
Hill, and Gilmore 
were added dur- 
ing the following 

The original Engineering College, as it was called when organized in the College of Liberal 
Arts, offered but two courses: civil and electrical engineering. Departments of mineral and 

mechanical engineering were soon afterwards created, and still later came the formation of the 
chemical and forestry courses. The departments of mineral and forestry engineering were 
dropped a few years later because of the scanty attendance. The present status of the 
college is very satisfactory. Enrollment during the fall term was 376, and an increase is 
expected next year. 

The last year has seen a number of enlargements and improvements in the laboratories and 
equipment. Most important among these is the new hydraulic testing laboratory, situated at the 
west end of the university dam, and capable of itilizing the entire dry-weather flow of the river, 
at a maximum head of nine feet. So far as is known there is no other such laboratory in the 
country which presents for research, under a gravity head, such large volume of water. 

The new chemical engineering laboratory is now being refitted under the direct supervision 
of Dr. H. L. Olin, of the department of industrial chemistry, and is located in the basement of 
Close Hall. There is ample floor space and the height of the room provides plenty of head 
room for the evaporators and taller apparatus, some of which stands twenty feet high. The 
most expensive of this equipment is probably the Devine double-effect evaporator, which operates 
under vacuum, using exhaust steam, and is capable of concentrating the most delicate liquors 
with perfect safety, and in large quantities. A column still and the necessary other equipment to 

handle i t have 
also been added, 
along with nu- 
merous solution 
tanks and agita- 
tors. This lab- 
oratory will be 
ready to be oc- 
cupied early in 
the spring, and 
will be one of 
the largest and 
most complete 
in the country 
for conducting 

steam laboratory industrial chem- 

ical research in the semi-factory type. When questioned as to the probabilties of completing the 
main Engineering building, Dean Raymond only shrugs his shoulders and says, "We need the 
room very badly, but the chemistry department probably has the first call." We hope a building 
program will come soon. 

The future of the College of Applied Science at Iowa is assured. Faculty and Alumni are 
enthusiastically agreed on this point. The very high quality of the work attempted and the 
unique methods of instruction all tend toward a college that will have rapid growth along with 
the remainder of the institution. Each student is provided with an office desk and drafting 
table, which constitute his office. Classes are limited to twenty, and the instructor goes to the 
office of the student, instead of the student to the office of the instructor. Courses of the next 
few years will be lengthened to admit the study of certain branches of law, English, and history, 
according to the instructional group; and with the possibility of a new addition to the present 
engineering building within a few years, Iowa will not fail to keep the traditions of the early 
engineers and maintain a leading College of Applied Science.

An ambition to make the College of Applied Science a recognized and spirited factor in the 
life of the University prompted the organization of what has since become known as the 
Associated Students of Applied Science. Originated in 1909 by the students, it has since steadily 
grown in numbers and prestige until today it has instilled a fine spirit of democracy, loyalty, and 
good fellowship into every phase of the student life of the college, fulfilling, in a large part, the 
purpose of every organization. 

It has, further, brought about closer co-operation between faculty and students, and stands as 
a guarantee of the honor system. Its influence can be seen in any class room or laboratory for 
the mutual understanding that exists breeds to its best, that spirit that makes Iowa a potent 
force in he present work-a-day world. One of the first apparent results of the organization, at 
least on the list, was the adoption of an annual day of celebration, following the example set by 
many other such colleges of the middle west. The first was held on March 17, 1908 — St. 
Patrick's day — but this date was later changed to officially named Mecca day because of the 
singular relation of the origin of the word and its historical and geographical significance. The 
word is made up of the first letters of the names of the five departments of the college: Mechan- 
ical, Electrical, Civil, Chemical, and Architectural. Further, Mecca is a far-famed city of 
Arabia, known among tourists the world over, and its chief significance probably lies in the 
pilgrimages to the sacred shrine there, — an analogy to the return of alumni to their Alma Mater. 
The celebration consists of a banquet, dance (the most pretentious of the year's series), show 
parade, and exhibition. This has now become tradition — a regular event looked forward to by 
the whole campus. 

The Association is justly proud of the accomplishments to its credit. The fact that it has 
produced a better understanding among members of the college faculty and the student, and has 
aided materially in the growth of that spirit of Old Gold in the hearts of each and everv one of 
its numerous alumni and students, is indeed a worthy fulfillment of its ideals.

The Transit is an annual publication of the College of Applied Science, and is edited solely 
by the students of that college. Founded in 1890, its chief function is to keep the alumni of the 
institution in constant touch with the college, and the mailing list complete includes about a 
thousand names, and carries the magazine to every corner of the world where alumni are engaged 
in engineering projects. 

Each year a number of articles of engineering value are contributed by faculty and alumni of 
the college, and are usually the result of extensive research along some scientific line, or are 
descriptive of some large engineering enterprise. Such material is of course invaluable to the 
old grads as well as to the present-day students. Another of the great features of The Transit 
every year is the section devoted to the Mecca Day program, which takes place in March of 
each year. The vivid descriptions of the celebration and shows are always included, for many 
of the men who will receive the booklet are the very men who first conceived the idea of such a 
day at Iowa. There are many who are able to get back to this, the engineers' homecoming, but 
again there are many who can not come, and it is for these that The Transit is primarily intended. 

The magazine takes an especial pride in keeping a revised alumni directory, giving the where- 
abouts of the various graduates and the firm with which he is associated in business, and this 
stands a constant revision up to press time. The staff for the year 1920 consists of Chas. A. 
Mockmore, manager; Chas. E. Stickney, advertising manager; Maurice C. Miller, editor, and 
Allen I. Dunn, Julius R. Troeltzsch, and Lloyd W. Burns, acting as associate editors. The 
manager and editors are elected each fall by a student vote at a meeting of the A. S. of A. S., 
while the other offices are filled by appointment. 

The Transit is usually ready for mailing about May 1st, and the copies to high schools are 
always in the hands of prospective students early. It is quite likely that the list of this year 
will be largely in increase to the normal list. 


The incoming classes of the College of Applied Science are constantly growing from year to 
year. This year has been an exceptionally good one and may be taken as a criterion for those 
ahead. In the first time in the history of the college a woman is enrolled in the engineering 
courses, and indicates her intentions of getting a B. S. degree from the college.

LTHOUGH the College of Education was authorized by the Board of Regents in 1907, 
it was not definitely established until 1912; then through the efforts of President Walter 
Albert Jessup, at that time dean of the College of Education, it became an active de- 
partment of the University. This College has had remarkable growth from a few 
professors and a very few students until now it ranks third in size, personnel, and 
equipment among universities in the United States. 
In 1917 Professor William Fletcher Russell became dean of the College of Education, filling 
the place of Dean Jessup, who then took up his duties as President of the University. During 
the few years he has been connected with the University, Dean Russell has been actively engaged 
in raising the standards of education and broadening its field. A year ago last August, he was 
sent by the United States Government to Russia and Siberia to help establish a new educational 
system and to learn how the United States might help in the reconstruction of a new republic. 

The influence of the College is very far-reaching. Many prominent educators over the country 
received their training here. Members of the faculty are constantly in demand to give lectures or 
make surveys in every part of the United States. All students who graduate with the prospect 
of teaching are assured of good positions. 

The equipment of this College is efficient and extensive. The education library, separate from 
the general university library, is the second best of its kind in the United States. The two big 
features of the work in this department are thoroughness and personal contact with the professors. 
Those students doing graduate work especially have opportunity to receive help and inspiration 
from their professors.

The work of the Extension Division is growing. The last General Assembly gave an additional 
appropriation of $21,500 annually for the biennial period and stipulated that it should be spent 
in social welfare and public health education. While social welfare work has been one of the 
Important phases of extension work since the organization of the Division, this is the first time 
that a specific appropriation for this work has been given ; that part of the appropriation to be 
devoted to public health education is the first state appropriation made directly to any university 
division for work of this kind. 

In this connection the Division has employed a public health worker as a sanitarian. His 
duties are to give lectures in the field of public health, particularly with reference to community 
health and community sanitation. Sanitary surveys of communities will also be made under his 

Ever since the so-called Perkins Law became operative, the need for a follow-up worker for 
the children who are sent to our hospital under the terms of this law, has been felt. The Exten- 
sion Division, therefore, has employed a nurse with social training to do this work, and she has 
-already visited more than eight hundred of the children who have been cared for by the hospital. 

Prof. O. E. Klingaman 

Her work is to see that these children are being properly cared for and that a place in the com- 
munity is made for them as normal children. 

The Division is also an agency for Americanization. It is the head of the Iowa Patriotic 
League, an organization which exists in 238 high schools in the state with an approximate en- 
rollment of 26,000 students. Its object is to give high school students a better knowledge of the 
big governmental problems of today, and a bibliography dealing with general subjects is sent to 
each of the schools at the beginning of the school year. This is further supplemented by bulletins 
issued approximately every two weeks. At the close of the school year in 1919 an essay writing 
contest was held under the auspices of the League in which something more than four thousand 
essays were written and four hundred medals were distributed to the winners. 

A bulletin, "The Study of Americanization", was issued early in September as the basis for 
study of this subject in a large number of women's clubs. Another bulletin, "The Ten Great 
Charters of Americanism", edited and compiled by the department of history, has also been 
published and distributed by this Division. Other bulletins that have met with phenomenal success 
and have to do with the Child Welfare Research Station have been, "Diet for the School Child" 
and "Physical Growth of School Children". 

The older lines of extension work have been maintained and strengthened. School surveys 
have been made this year in Shenandoah, Clinton, Storm Lake, Boone, Muscatine, and a number 
of other places, while social surveys have been made at Creston, Chariton, Newton, Burlington, 
Council Bluffs, Ottumwa, and other cities. Business surveys have been made at Muscatine, Belle 
Plaine, and Storm Lake, and an industrial survey is under headway in Iowa City. Conferences 
on various subjects have also been conducted, among these being a conference on School Super- 
vision, conference for Religious Workers, a Woman's Conference, and a conference for Newspaper 
Workers. A short course on Income Tax Problems for Iowa bankers was held in January, which 
enrolled more than six hundred bankers who came from ninety-five different counties in the state.

~ r l~A^ HE Summer Session has come to stay. There can be little doubt about that. Not 
I >o many years ago and it was the tail to the kite, the rag-tag and bob-tail of 
'^tL ' scn00 ' ar >d college, the God-given swimming-pool for "lame ducks" and a refuge 
7;^' for spectacled and superannuated school ma'ms. In this year of grace it has become 
'B^^-S a most solid element in our educational system, an animated laboratory of experiments, 
' ^J l tne testing station of new ideas. Undergraduates are using it to shorten or vivify 

a college course, teachers and administrative offices are beginning to consider it a regular part 
of their annual round, professional men are finding it a convenient refreshment depot for 
facts and theories. In at least one of our great American universities the tail has begun to 
wag the dog — in other words, the summer session is larger than the main show. 

These similes and metaphors may seem to be wildly mixed. We shall not take pains to 
defend them, but their bearing is correct if they carry the idea of the exceeding importance 
in this phase of college and university life. Perhaps it may mean something like an approach 
to the English university system, in which the student attends lectures in winter and in 
summer settles down to steady reading. At any rate the greater intensity of scholastic life 
and the fewer distractions make summer study increasingly attractive to the bewildered 

In this recent advance of the Summer Session the University of Iowa has kept up w r ith the 
van. Indeed, in the matter of growth it has shown in the last few years a stronger progress 
than any other institution of which the statistics are available. From 1915 to 1919 the increase 
in attendance has been 93 per cent. Even during the war, when nearly all other institutions 
suffered a decided slump in attendance, Iowa kept on climbing. Five years ago 773, last 
year 1290, that is the record, and the prospect for 1920 is for not less than 1500 students. 

One of the most striking characteristics of the Summer Session at Iowa is the large number 
of mature men and women in attendance. Not fewer than 200 city superintendents last year 
were among the number. That the University has taken the lead among state universities in 
its proportion of graduate students is due in no little measure to the multitudes of graduates 
engaged in summer study. 

But let it not be thought that aged pedagogues are the only ones on the campus in summer. 
Not a few freshmen, now-a-days, enter college in June instead of waiting until September. 
Crowds of undergraduates stay on to build up credits, and many classrooms are as callow in 
July as they can possibly be in December. The Summer Session is a great Ieveler of all ranks 
and conditions of men — and of women. 

The hard-pressed student of the "regular" year is beginning to be jealous of the official 
activities that accompany the summer work. Excursions, lectures, receptions, and other festivities 
galore relieve the tensity of study quite as steady if not steadier than in winter time. For, 
besides the main tent there are numerous side-shows. The Summer School for Library Training 
brings a group of industrious librarians. At Lake Okoboji the Lakeside Laboratory occupies 
the time of a small but earnest party of scientists. The Summer Camp for Scout Masters in 
a lodge by the river attracts its cluster of devotees, wig-wagging their message from shore 
to shore. The Conference of Religious Workers summons another band of men and women 
not so solemn as their profession implies to some. 

Students who live in Iowa City only from September to June do not realize how much 
activity summer carries with it. In days of old the town was almost too dead to bury during 
the summer months. Now it is very much alive. And why not, for nearly all departments 
of the University are running full blast, one or two of them with a larger staff of instructors 
than in winter. The professional colleges are the least often engaged, though in 1919 all 
except one college were at work. In liberal arts, education, graduate work, nursing, enginnering, 
and various other fields work goes on practically the year round. 

Last year the Summer Session was eleven weeks in length, with one term of six weeks and 
one of five. The same periods will be maintained in 1920, the first term extending from June 1, 
the day after commencement, to July 27, and the second term from July 28 to August 31, leaving 
a vacation of three or four weeks before the next year's work begins. 

The instructional staff in 1920 will number between 150 and 200. Most of these are 
drawn from the regular force of the University, with a few special lecturers from other institu- 
tions, but in general the policy of keeping the same staff has been adopted with a view to 
maintaining a better standard of work. One exception to the rule is the precedent that a 

regular University instructor is not expected to teach both terms in summer. This is done 
so that a longer time may be afforded for writing and research as well as recreation. 

One of the special courses for the summer will be that on Americanization. In part, this work 
will be given by several of the regular departments of the University, and an expert in the 
subject will be imported to deal with certain technical case work. As usual much attention 
will be paid to the courses in school administration and supervision. A series of teachers' 
courses will be offered in many departments. The School of Commerce will specialize on 
salesmanship, acccunting, and the training cf experts on the income tax. In the School of 
Music courses will cover composition and practical music. New field courses in geology will 
be given at Baraboo, Wisconsin, and the Black Hills of Dakota. Journalism will be offered, 
with practice on The Daily Ioivan. A new series of courses in manual arts will be provided 
for the training of teachers. Courses in foods and nutrition will be given for dietitians, home 
economics teachers, and physicians. A clinical course and a course in surgical specialties will 
be provided for practicing doctors. A pre-nursing course will be offered. These are a few 
of the outstanding features that are outlined in the preliminary announcement. 

Another of the interesting developments of next summer will be the initiation of the 
Maison Francaise, a special residence for women in charge of a member of the staff of 
Romance Languages. In this house only the French language will be spoken, and opportunity 
will be given to obtain a practical speaking knowledge of French, almost as one would acquire 
it in a private family of gay Paree. 


A series of excursions, under the direction of capable guides, is conducted yearly for Summer 
Session students and their friends to places of educational interest in and near Iowa City. The 
two trips taken by automobile to Amana, the "Community of True Inspiration", are of especial 
interest to students of social, industrial, and historical fields. Those interested in botany find 
excellent opportunity for observation of swamp and prairie flora in the botanical excursions to 
the Homestead Woods, one of the finest native forests in Iowa, and in the excursions to Midriver 
and Coufal Woods. 

An excursion is also taken to study the geological phenomena on the west side of the Iowa 
River, and at the old state quarry near North Liberty. Many interesting features, such as the 
ancient limestone with its numerous fossils, including a reef of corals; an old surface polished by 
ice movement during the glacial periods; two glacial drifts, one of whch is very old, the other 
comparatively young; wind-blown deposits called "loess"; and the quarry from which the rock 
of Old Capitol were taken, are seen and discussed. 

Other excursions of interest are the inspection trip to the Quaker Oats factory in Cedar Rapids, 
the tour of University Buildings, inspection of the new Children's Hospital, a visit to the Zo- 
ological Museums, and to the Oakdale Sanitarium for the treatment of tuberculosis. 



The first Convocation of the nineteen nineteen Summer Session was held on Old Capitol 
Campus Friday afternoon of July twenty-fifth, at half past two o'clock. Invocation was offered 
by Dr. Dwight W. Wylie, and the commencement address was given by Dr. George W. Stewart, 
head of the department of physics, who took as his subject "Achievement". Fifty-two degrees 
were conferred at this Convocation. 

The Reverend Carlos Carson Rowlinson, of La Crosse, Wisconsin, delivered the address of 
the August Convocation on "A Working Hypothesis for the Days Just Ahead". Twenty-six de- 
grees were conferred, making the entire number for the session seventy-eight. The Convocation 
closed with the singing of "America". General assemblies of all students were held each 
Wednesday, special addresses being delivered by members of the faculty. 


The Training Camp for Scout Masters held during the first fortnight of the Summer Session, 
for the second time, under the direction of Charles F. Smith, Educational Scout Commissioner of 
New York City, is designed specifically to train scout executives and masters to handle 
troops in a competent and sympathetic manner. The Training Camp is conducted under the joint 
direction of the Extension Division and the Summer Session with the view of helping fill the 
great need for more and better leaders in the Scout movement. 

"The aim of the Scout movement is to inculcate character, which, though essential to success in 
life, is not taught within the school, and being largely a matter of environment is too generally 
left to chance, often with deplorable results. The Scout movement endeavors to supply the 
required environment and ambitions through games and outdoor activities which lead a boy to 
become a better man, a good citizen." 

The Camp, delightfully situated on the shore of the Iowa River about a half mile above the 
corporate limits of Iowa City, offers an ideal opportunity for living the life of a Scout and learn- 
ing the requisite methods through participation in the ordinary activities of Scouting. Practical 
experience in the actual Scouting work is the keynote of the course, discussion of theory and history 
of the movement being confined to the round table. 


One of the many marked changes of the last fifty years has been the development of the life- 
sciences, measured to the eye by the spread of their buildings, laboratories, and plant houses on 
every campus. The natural sciences have gradually grown into their important place in the 
liberal as well as the applied curricula, not by displacing anything fundamental in the older 
courses, but rather by filling their arc of the expanding circle of knowledge and training. 

A corollary to this growth of the biological sciences has been the organization of summer field 
and laborary study to supplement and complete the work of the regular college year. This need 
is met in part by the summer sessions of the several universities; they continue the story of the 
class room and permit field visits denied during the winter months. The special summer labora- 
tory has thus been a natural development to meet the needs of summer workers. From simple 
beginnings the idea has grown, until now there are several such stations in various parts of the 
country that are peculiarly favorable for summer study and research in the biological sciences. 
Simple but comfortable buildings house the apparatus and provide dining facilities, while the 
workers in tents or shelters, have all the desirable features of camp-life without its irksome 

Situated on Iowa's most beautiful lake, the Iowa Lakeside Laboratory is admirably located to 
serve these purposes. All summer long its doors are open to interested workers in Botany, Geology, 
and Zoology. This laboratory was established by Alumni of the University in 1909, to provide 
advanced biological workers of this region a favorable station for summer field study and investi- 
gation. While all find inspiration in the travels far afield, it is peculiarly fitting for a state- 
supported institution to offer opportunity for intensive study in the flora and fauna of its own state. 


Coach Howard H. Jones, Director of Athletics and in charge of the Summer Session courses of 
football and basket ball coaching, believes that the best way to learn to coach these games is to 
get an understanding of the different positions by actually occupying them. This is the method 
employed by him in training coaches of the state during the Summer Session. Practical work in 
reproducing so far as possible the actual conditions of play with demonstrations and explanations 
at every point and from every position by the coach is the basis for these classes. 

The high standard adhered to by Coach Jones in directing this work is shown in the following 
extract from a recent article by him: 

"The football coach must know the position and duties of every player in offensive play; 
he must know the defensive positions of every player and teach his men to anticipate and 
resist effectively the opponents' offensive plays; he must know how to instruct his men in 
passing and punting; he must be able to reduce physical injuries to a minimum and to admin- 
ister the proper remedy when they do occur. Above all, he must be capable of maintaining 
a state of discipline among his boys; he must be able to prescribe proper methods of training 
and see that they are properly carried out ; he must be clean and sportsmanlike, and insist that 
his boys have similar standards." 

The work in physical education is an integral part of the Summer Session, and the gymnasium 
is as popular during the summer months as during the rest of the year. Those working toward 
degrees with a major in the department may take the summer work and hasten graduation. 
Physical education is in direct charge of Ernest Gustav Schroeder, Physical Director at the 
University for the past twelve years. 



The Iowa Summer School for Library Training was organized by the Iowa Library Commission 
in 1901, and held its first session June 17 to Jul)- 27 of that year, as a department of the Summer 
Session. Miss Alice Tyler, Secretary of the Commission, was the first Director of the School, and, 
together with her assistant, Miss Margaret Brown, contributed much to the success and high 
standing of the Library Training School. 

The Iowa Library Commission conducted the School until 1912, when the increased pressure 
caused temporary cessation. This omission, however, only emphasized the fact that there was still 
a demand for the summer library work, and the university assumed responsibility for the school. 
In 1913, with the University Librarian as director, the Iowa Library Commission actively co- 
operated in its management. 

The primary purpose of the school is to raise the standard of librarianship in the small libraries 
of the state, and to enlarge the conception of what the library should stand for in the community. 
Daily instruction is given in the fundamental subjects relating to library organization and 
methods. The course is in no sense offered as a substitute for the full training of a regular 
library school, but is intended for those who desire instruction in modern library methods and 
who do not have the time to attend a full course school.

HE Graduate College was formally organized in 1900 and represents all the graduate 
work in all other colleges of the University, providing for research in nearly all 
departments. The Graduate College is the strongest college of the University, having 
the largest faculty and the third largest enrollment, being surpassed only by the 
Colleges of Liberal Arts and Applied Science. The Graduate College of this university 
compares favorably in enrollment with the graduate colleges of other state universities. 
The following table shows the ratio of graduate registration to the total registration in a 
number of universities from which data are available:

Three degrees are conferred by the Graduate College, Master of Science, Master of Arts, 
and Doctor of Philosophy. The standard is equal to that of the best educational institutions in 
the United States, some of the departments having received special commendation from educa- 
tional surveys. To further promote graduate work several fellowships are offered. 

The Graduate College is fortunate in having Prof. Carl E. Seashore as dean. Dean 
Seashore is a member of the Executive Committee of the National Research Council for Psychology 
of the American Psychological Association. He is also the inventor of many instruments for 
scientific experiment and has been active as a writer of books and pamphlets, among which 
are "Psychology and Daily Life," "Manual of Experiments in Psychology," "The Psychology 
of Musical Talent," and "Dreams". 


Of what use the friendliest 
disposition ever, if there are 
no hours given to friendship, 
if it is forever postponed to 
unimportant duties and rela- 
tions. How often we find 
ourselves turning our bacl^s on 
our actual friends to go and 
meet their ideal cousins.

There is no institution on 
earth which friendship has 
established; it is not taught 
by any religion; no scripture 
contains its maxims. It has no 
temple, nor even a solitary 
column, but as the web of fate 
is woven it be filled. 

— Henry D. Thoreau

TAFF AND CIRCLE is an honorary organization of senior girls of the University, 
was founded in 1912 to act in an advisory capacity with the Dean of Women. It 
consists of twelve members selected as most representative of the junior women of the 
school, and is under the direct supervision of the Dean. Election to Staff and Circle 
is largely governed by custom. The Dean of Women holds a May Breakfast for all 
the girls of the Senior class, at which time a vote is taken of the most representaive 
Junior women. The Staff and Circle girls then select the twenty highest of these and investigate 
their scholastic standing, which must be average or above to make them eligible. This list of 
twenty who are eligible for election is posted the following Tuesday, and a vote is taken by all 
the girls of the Junior class to determine the twelve members. The girl receiving the highest 
number of votes is recognized as president. 

Of late Staff and Circle has been every active in the betterment of those things which interest 
the women of Iowa. Chief among these are their efforts toward student government and the 
organization of the Woman's Council, out of which the University Student Council has evolved. 
At present a point system is under consideration whereby the activities of the women are re- 
stricted, and no few can take the lead in all things. This plan has proven very successful at 
other schools, and will undoubtedly be in operation at the University of Iowa soon. As an 
example for under-graduates, Staff and Circle has a great field for no greater honors may be

Organized eight years ago with the primary purpose of serving as life guards along the Iowa 
river on Sundays, the Eels Club has enjoyed a steady growth. Since the time of its founding 
it has branched out, and now encourages aquatic sports in the tank as well as on the river. 
Last year the club supervised the Mid-River canoe race, which promises to become a regular 
spring event. A loving cup will be given as a prize, beginning this year. The club is proud 
of its record, which shows that not a single fatality has occurred on the river while these men 
were patrolling.

/4 happy man or woman is a 
better thing to find than a five 
pound note. He or she is a 
radiating focus of good will; 
and their entrance into a room 
is as though another candle 
Were lighted. They practi- 
cally demonstrate the great 
theorem of Livableness of 

life. — Henry D. Thoreau

T MOST times inconspicuous, and yet playing a very important part in Iowa's athletic 
triumphs, is the Board in Control of Athletics. Consisting of fifteen members made 
up of faculty representatives, coaches, and the four captains of the major athletic 
teams, this board dictates the sports policy of the University. Let it here be said that 
much of the athletic progress made in the last few years can be traced directly to the 
activity of this organization. 
This year the board has indeed been active. It has revived the almost dead "I" club and has seen 
to it that it was properly organized ; it has boosted cross country running, and agreed to grant 
members of the cross country team special letters for proficient work ; it aided materially in 
creating a better university spirit by equipping three Hawkeye cheer leaders with proper uni- 

forms, and seeing to it that they were always on the spot when needed. It was these three men 
that led the Iowa fans in an unprecedented cheering fest at the Midway when Chicago so nearly 
went down before the Hawkeye onslaught. Further, the Board in Control of Athletics donated 
$100 as a nucleus about which the campus raised by subscription over $500 to send the band to 
the Midway also. 

When Coach Sharpe, of the Freshman football team, was swamped with over a hundred candi- 
dates, the athletic board immediately secured an assistant coach to aid in the handling of the 
biggest aggregation of freshman football material that Iowa had' ever seen. To round things 
out nicely, the athletic dinner at the expense of the board was the last of the events that so 
closed a wonderful football season. 

During the snowy months, interest was diverted to basketball, gym work, swimming, and 
boxing, all of which were placed on a smooth-running basis that allowed for real, genuine 
development in every way. A track mixer brought out five hundred men — an unheard of 
event — and the interscholastic high school basketball tournament and track meet were only 
indications of the farsightedness of the men that compose the Board in Control of Athletics. As 
a finale to the year, a banquet is given in early June of each year to every member of basketball, 
baseball, and track teams, and it is here that the captains for these three teams are chosen. 
What the future may produce will depend to no small extent upon the action and judgment 
of these men. 


HE University of Iowa is now represented on 
the athletic map as one of the strongest 
schools west of the Mississippi. A few years 
ago this could hardly be said with any great 
respect for veracity. True, we did at times 
throw a scare into the leaders of the confer- 
ence, but it was seldom that an Iowa team was seriously 
considered as a possibility for the title. We were, in 
the main, confined to state competition for our reputa- 
tion, and, consequently, our schedule to state games. 
Now that is changed. No longer is the theme of our 
pep-fests merely to "Hold 'em, Iowa", for we have 
ceased to think solely in terms of holding. We now 
can enter a game and know that the holding will be 
largely on the side of the opponents. The days when 
we were so certain that we were to be defeated, and 
the only thing to be questioned was just how much, have 
passed. Minnesota has learned this twice; Nebraska 
has also found things different than those days of big 
scores on the Iowa field. 

The reason for Iowa's new spirit can be traced di- 
rectly to the Athletic Department that has been so active 
for the last few years. Seven in number, these men 
have worked in harmony for the good of the institution 
and have maintained the same high standard of athletics for which Iowa is well known. The 
Board in Control of Athletics has been careful in selecting newcomers, and their painstaking care 
is well reflected in the records we have made. 

Howard II. JONKS 

Coach Howard H. Jones came to Iowa in 1916 for the first time as head coach of football. 
Graduating from Phillips Exeter Academy in 1905, with an enviable record, he entered Yale 
the next year. For three years he played at end on the Yale eleven, and in that period only two 
touchdowns were registered against the Blue. He was also active on the Yale baseball squad 
and pitched two seasons with them. The year following graduation, he was elected coach at 
Syracuse University, and the most notable among the performances of his first team was the 
holding of his Alma Mater to a S to score, the outplaying of 
Princeton in a scoreless tie, and the defeat of the strong Michigan 
team. He was recalled to his Alma Mater in the following year 
and made her the champion of the East. The year following he 
coached Ohio State, and again returned to the Blue as their first 
salaried coach. No opponent got past the 28-yard line during 
that season and seven of his men were placed on the All-Amer- 
can team by Camp. In 1911 Jones entered business, and it 
was not until 1916 that the Iowa Athletic 
Board was able to persuade him to come into 
the West. Jones has coached both football 
and baseball since his arrival here, and has 
not yet realized his capabilities. 

Coach James N. Ashmore comes to the Uni- 
versity after having spent some two years in 
the army as an athletic director. Coach Ash- 
more graduated from Lincoln College, Lincoln, 

Illinois, in 1899, and immediately entered the University of Illinois. While 
there he made an enviable reputation as an all-round athlete in baseball, 
track, and football. Upon graduation from Illinois Coach Ashmore entered 
the athletic field as a coach, and until his entrance into the service, was en- 
gaged in this work. While in the army he attained the rank of Captain, and 
was, just prior to his resignation, in charge of the organization of athletics 
and physical training in the Eastern department. Coach Ashmore came to 
0RF Iowa in the fall of 1919 as coach of basket ball and track, and assistant coach 
Coach in football. 

Trainer Jack Watson 

Trainer Jack Watson has, like the coaches, spent practically the whole 
of his life in athletics. As a professional athlete, he made his first ap- 
pearance as a competitor at the Caledonian games, later touring the prin- 
cipal cities in Europe. Today two of his records are still standing. After 
twelve years of professional work, he began a coaching career, coming 
to Grinnell College in 1897. In 1904 he went to Ames and remained there 
until 1913, when he accepted Iowa's offer. This year marks Watson's 
thirty-second year in the coaching world. 

Trainer Watson has had a remarkable coaching as well as athletic 
career. His first appearance as a professional was made in his native 
land of Scotland when he was but nineteen. He could, at this time, pass 
a hundred in about ten seconds, jump with the best of them, especially 
when the top, skip, and jump were on the list of cometition, and likewise 
could keep pace with the best of the vaulters of his day. 

Watson's first coaching charge was at Grinnell College, later at Iowa 
State, and finally to the University. During the time spent at Ames it 
was largely due to the interest aroused by Watson that developed the un- 
usual track spirit that prevails there now. Cross country was his hobby, 
and in recent years Iowa State has seldom been badly defeated in any 

E. G. Sc 


such meet. Cross country has also had an added impetus at Iowa during the 
last few years. The honorary "I" is now awarded for satisfactory work in this 
sport, althoug no heavy meets have, as yet, been entered by the Old Gold 
runners since the war. 

Watson also plays an important role during the football and basket ball sea- 
sons, having complete charge of the men's physical welfare and ailments. It is 
Watson that prescribes rest, or work, or the hospital for the battered men of 
gridiron fame. It is for him to say as to what condition a man should be in 
before entering the more important games; it is for him to decide the proper diet 
and sleeping hours. From the stands one may see him saunter out into the field 
during almost every game to revive some stunned player, or to tape a strained 
wrist or ankle. Known state wide, Watson has come to be an indispensible part 
of Iowa athletics. 

Ernest Gustav Schroeder came to Iowa in 1907, as head of the Department 
of Physical Training. Beginning as an assistant in the Dayton, Ohio, Y. M. 
C. A. in 1902, Mr. Schroeder has been connected with the work ever since. In 
1903 he was director of the Y. M. C. A. at Marshalltown, Iowa, attended 
Simpson College in 1904—5, and again resumed his position at Marshalltown 
until the fall of 1907, when he came to Iowa. Mr. Schroeder has placed Iowa in competition 
with the bigger schools of the Middle West by his gymnasium teams, and now swimming is 
slowly coming to the fore as a sport, with Mr. Schroeder building a fast team for the conference 

Assistant to Director Schroeder is Nelson J. Sharp, a new arrival at Iowa. Mr. Sharp attended 
Peekskill Military Academy, New York, 1909-11, and the Worcerter Academy 1911-15 Upon 
graduation from the latter, he entered the Springfield Physical Training College in 1917, spending 
tw T o years there, and coming to Iowa in the autumn of 1919 to fill the position left vacant by the 
resignation of Mr. Wheeler. 

Mr. Sharp was placed in charge of the freshman football squad in the early part of the year 
and acquitted himself well in keeping the Varsity busy with new plays. His regular duties are 
those of a gymnasium instructor and, accordingly, he is in charge of the gymnasium team. 

In direct charge of the swimming activities and assistant to Mr. Schroeder in the Department 
of Physical Training is David A. Armbruster. An expert swimmer himself, Mr. Armbruster 
has added the proper interest to the newest of minor sports at Iowa by entering three conference 
meets with his teams, and although losing all, a very capable showing was made that well 
indicates the calibre of material that will be available for next year's competition. Mr. Arm- 
bruster came to Iowa in 1916, after attending three summer sessions ath the Lake Geneva 
Y. M. C. A. Training Camp for three years, and Iowa Wesleyan College for two years. Mr. 
Armbruster is also an instructor in gymnastics. 

Another who has graced the Iowa gymnasium for some years, and has now resigned to allow 
more time for his work in medicine, is "Pat" Wright. As a boxer, Wright stands among the 
best that the university has ever had as coach, and as a coach of wrestling he has likewise an 
enviable record. Of the two teams he has coached for the Old Gold, two individuals have 
been declared conference champions in their respective weights. Wright also has been instru- 
mental in training gymnasium teams. 

Picked by Walter Eckersall two years in succession for the 
mythical All-Western eleven has been the honor bestowed upon 
Captain Fred Lohman. Built ideally for the position of fullback, 
and with a good clear knowledge of the game, he has been al- 
ways in the lead, generaling his team and setting an example of 
the "Iowa Fights" spirit. In the S. A. T. C. days, when service 
elevens were made up of men from every school, Lohman played 
a fullback position for the Old Gold that ranked with the best 
in the Middle West. With his athletic activities he is carrying 
a course in medicine, graduating in 1921. Under present rules 
affecting S. A. T. C. games, he has another year in which to 

Iowa has also placed two other men on the mythical All- 
Western team besides Lohman. Belding, a sophomore in the 
College of Applied Science, entered the institution in 1918, and 
under the rules then in vogue made the varsity, holding a berth 
at end position. This year he has again been a mainstay at end, 
one of the most feared in the conference because of his uncanny 
ability to locate passes and to stop plays around the left wing. 

Captain Fred Lohman 

Still another picked for the same eleven 
is Fred Slater. More commonly known 
as "Duke", Slater was always a menace 
to the opposition and ordinarily found 
two men instructed to stop him. With 
a giant build and no knowledge of fear, Duke was always breaking up 
the party, slipping in to cut the backs off or to stop them half way if 
they were thoughtless enough to attempt a smash. In the Illinois battle 
Slater met an old team mate of high school days that in the previous 
year had seen Duke meet a punt fresh from the toe of an Illinois kicker 
and outplayed him in the remainder of the game. 

Not so this year. Slater played a masterly game and was met in the 
second period by Ingerwson and another, in an attempt to smother him, 
but with the same effect as in the prior quarter, for Duke was not to be 
stopped in any fashion. 

The last two years have been great years for the Old Gold on the 
gridiron. Playing well up in the conference and losing the champion- 
ship by a margin of five points, Coach Howard H. Jones deserves no 
little credit for his ability in handling men. Next year Jones promises a conference pennant 
and behind him, solid, stands Iowa, win or lose!

When the first call for freshman football men was made early last fall, no less than one 
hundred yearlings answered and donned the moleskins. Nelson Sharpe, of the Physical Training 
Department, was placed in charge of the squad as coach, and before the season had finished 
had produced very satisfactory results. 

With no opportunity to play in any games outside of Iowa Field, the freshman squad is the 
one aggregation against which the varsity is constantly thrown throughout the season. Op- 
ponents' plays are placed in the hands of the yearlings, and after a couple of practices, the 
varsity gets to see the play in action. It is probably due to the great diversity of plays that are 
taught to the newcomers during their first year at Iowa that aids materially in producing con- 
ference championship material, such as Iowa has had every reason to be proud of during the 
last season. 


N THE fifteenth of September some forty football warriors answered 
the call of the gridiron and reported to Coach Jones for preliminary 
instructions and training. This was two weeks in advance of the 
opening of the school year, and of the last year's team Captain 
Lohman, Pyles, Block, Belding, Synhorst, Mockmore, Slater, Heldt, 
Kelly, Hunzleman, and Charlton had returned. Besides these vet- 

Captain Fred 

erans, there was promising material among the remainder to fill out the quota 
of the season, and the work began with a gusto that kept the coaches them- 
selves guessing for a time. It was from this list of enthusiastic men that 
Howard H. Jones moulded the team that kept the conference guessing at all 
times, and placed Iowa on a par with any eleven in the Big Ten. 

The squad was put through the preliminary antics at top speed for the first 
two weeks, and the constant reminder was "Speed Up". New plays were 
developed and worked out while a defence for the coming 
Nebraska team was planned. Not since 1899, until 1918, 
had Iowa succeeded in defeating the Cornhuskers, and the 
first game was to be a good test of the Hawkeye strength. 

It ended with an 18 to victory for Jones's newly 
built aggregation, and Iowa laid the first plan for a con- 
ference championship. Mid-season form on the part of the Hawkeyes marked 
to contest and the forward wall especially showed great defensive ability, 
while the backfield worked smoothly, indeed. Seven veterans were on the 
initial lineup and the remaining places were filled by Kaufmann at right 
guard, Charlton at left, and the two Devine brothers in the backfield. 

This first victory can be attributed largely to the smooth team work that 
had been developed, but the work of the two Devines, the giant Slater, and 
Synhorst were features of the day. Time after time 
the Nebraska runners failed to pass the line of scrim- 
mage, and were often downed for a loss by meeting 
one of the big tackles. 

The first tally came as a direct result of a short 
pass from Aubrey Devine to Glenn Devine at the 
twenty-yard line. A second score followed shortly, 
when Slater blocked Dobson's punt on the Nebraska twenty-yard line and 
the line buck formations were used for the steady march toward the goal, 
Captain Lohman demonstrating his ability to plunge through Nebraska's 
best. A third score was counted from Devine's dropkick in the third 
quarter, and the final tallies were added when Dobson was thrown for 
a safety in the last period. 

Fans were delighted at the outcome of the Nebraska game and waited 
anxiously for the coming of the Illinois-Iowa game on the following 
Saturday. These two teams had finished the 1919 season in first and 
second places, and Iowa was intent upon coming home from Urbana with 
the heavy end of the score. Two weeks' stiff practice put the squad in 

excellent shape for the affair that was to decide the grudge of a year Captain-elect

Fate, however, drew cards in the game at this time, and on the 
eve of the battle Synhorst, the giant tackle of the right wing, was 
declared ineligible, and Block was placed in that breach and filled it 
well. Block had never before played tackle's position and, although 
weighing but slightly above the 150-pound mark, he mixed in every 
play and was often the brunt of the 111 ini attack. It w : as a wonder- 
ful exhibition of football. Both teams were working well and were 
evenly matched as two teams could possibly be. The score indicates 
just how bitterly the game was contested and Iowa was nosed out of 
the long end of the score by two points. Iowa's sole touchdown came 
as a result of straight football, while Zuppke's eleven had to resort to 
the ancient on-side kick to get their score. At straight 
football, Illinois could never have scored, for the Iowa line com- 
pletely outplayed their opponents. During the first five minutes of 
play, Iowa had the Suckers entirely at bay and several beautifully 
executed forward passes put Belding over in a 
short time for the lone touchdown to our credit. 
Illinois did their scoring in the second and third 
quarters, the first being a touchdown through the 
recovery of an on-side kick by Ralph Fletcher, 

the Orange and Blue back, and the second a drop kick by the same individual. 

The final score found Illinois with 9 against Iowa's 6. 

Slater, the giant tackle, went against an ancient high-school team-mate, 

Ingerson, and broke up everything that came his way, while Heldt and Block 

did excellent work in the center of the line. Belding exhibited to the con- 

I; ference scouts that he was a dangerous man at raking in forward passes, and 

a man to be feared as well on defense. 

The defeat was hard to take at the hands of the same team that cost us the 

conference championship last year, and the Gophers were doomed to meet a 

blood-thirsty aggregation. The confidence was still there, although Illinois 

had piled a score and Jones's men were hard at the same business of steady 

football in preparation for the Gophers. 

This time the trip was to Northrop Field, 

with the dope slightly in favor of the Old Gold 

eleven, although every indication was that it 

would be a hard fought game. And a desperate 

struggle it was. Iowa shattered Minnesota's Big Ten aspirations 

by a 9 to 6 victory, and the score best describes the nature of the 

milling. Both teams smashed to touchdown across in the first half, 

Lohman going thorugh the Minnesota line for Iowa's, and Reuben 

scoring for the Gopher's, shortly before the whistle. With the 

score 6 to 6 and time in the favor of the Gophers, Aubrey Devine 

pushed the ball 60 yards in two plays and then booted the oval 

for a field goal from the 35-yard line for another counter, bringing 

the total to 9 for Iowa. It was in this game that Parker won his 

varsity berth by his spectacular 45-yard run, returning a punt late 

in the second period. 

The South Dakota "Covotes" were next on the list, and for the 

.... r , . , Chas. Mockmore 

second time of the season, Iowa supporters were able to see the Guard 

B. Synhorst 

Glen Devise 

team in action on the home field. The final score was 26 to 13, with the 
Iowa second string playing the whole of the second half. During the first 
half enough ground was gained by the Hawkeyes for nine or ten touchdowns, 
but frequent fumbles were costly and kept the score down materially. The 
forward wall kept the Coyotes at bay, stopping everything that came their 
way, and it was not until the second period with the whole of the second 
string playing that the invaders were able to score. Their first tally was the 
result of a recovered punt and several successful line punches by Montgomery. 
Their second score was the result of a well executed shoe-string play, this time 
Ashby, Dakota's shifty colored halfback, taking the ball over. Our scores 
were obtained from several forward flips, Belding going over twice and Pyles 

The South Dakota tilt proved to be a valuable game for the coming con- 
ference battles with Northwestern and Chicago, for the coaches were given the 
opportunity to look their material over and see the second string under fire 
for the first time. 

Two weeks elapsed before the team met Backman's Purple 
eleven at Evanston, and although that team had not won a 
conference game, they were by no means weak opponents. 
The score proved that they were a worthy team, for they 
drove one touchdown over to Iowa's two, even though outplayed most of the 
time. This occurred in the second period, when Fullback Koehler managed to 
find holes fast enough to get loose for a score. At no other time was the Iowa 
goal menaced. 

The feature work of the game is to be accredited to Aubrey Devine working 
from his new position of quarterback. Both scores were made by him, the first 
a fifteen-yard run from a punt formation, and the second by a dive under Johnny 
Heldt. Probably the greatest defensive exhibition was put up by the ends, Charl- 
ton and Belding, for they seldom failed to pocket the Purple runner and allow 
' one of the tackles to get in and stop the play. 

This made the second conference victory in succession, and the powerful 
Maroons were still to be defeated, the last team of any importance on Iowa's card. 
- ) Belding ^he following Saturday, with fifteen hundred followers and the band in full 

End dress, we invaded the sacred Stagg Field and 

gave the Midway the scare that still lingers. The Del Prado 
Hotel was the stopping place of the Hawkeyes, and all morning 
long it was thronged with the followers of the Old Gold and 
alumni that had come from far and near to see the greatest 
football classic of the West of the season. Old Grad met old 
Grad and sung the praises of such stars as Garretson, Gross, 
Leo, Murphy, McGinnis, and Becker before the band began the 
procession toward Stagg Field. 

Two more evenly matched elevens probably never met on the 
chalked field before. Iowa scored a first touchdown within five 
minutes after the game opened, when Parker scooped Huchin- 
son's fumble on Chicago's forty-three-yard line, and gave Iowa 
an opportunity to open up with the famous aerial attack that 

proved so effective. Three times was the ball thrown to Beld- 

■ , < 11 i • j • i_ Ti/r Arthur Pyles 

mg and three times he pulled it down with as many Maroons End 

around him. Captain Lohman ploughed great holes in the defense of Stagg's 
men in rapid succession, and as a fitting climax, came the short, quick pass 
from Aubrey Devine to his brother, Glen, netting the first score. 

Chicago came back in the second quarter with a series of spectacular runs, 
and Graham, the Maroon quarterback, carried the ball past Iowa's goal posts 
to tie the count. The third period was a contest of grueling straight football 
and Iowa had but one chance to score. Aubrey Devine dropped back from the 
line at the middle of the field and attempted a drop kick which was partially 
blocked, and fell short. Then came the fourth quarter with the teams tied, each 
able to hold the other equally well. 

It was here that the climax of excitement reached its height. Graham, the 
midget quarterback of the Stagg machine, proved our undoing. A long pass 
and a fifteen-yard run placed Chicago within striking distance, only to be held Guerdon Parker 
three times by the powerful Iowa line. Graham then a back 
dropped back and booted a perfect field goal from the twenty-five-yard line,, 
giving Chicago the three-point lead at a most critical period of the game. 
Again did the Hawkeyes begin the aerial attack, raining passes every- 
where as fast as they could. In the remaining five minutes of play, the oval 
was twice carried the length of the field and rested but a meagre six inches 
from the white line that separated us from victory. But the score remained 
9 to 6 in favor of Chicago. It was a hard defeat to take, as all such defeats 
are, but there was no helping it. Chicago fans were never allowed a chance 
for a good breath all during the time of play, and the Midway is not apt to 
soon forget the terrific gruelling and brilliant flashes of that game. Especially 
will the playing of Lohman, Slater, Belding, and the Devines go down as 
possibly the most brilliant ever seen on that field. 

The season was closed so far as conference standing was concerned, and 
now the final week of practice was to get in trim for the Homecoming game 
with Ames, to be held on Iowa Field. A crowd of no less than ten thousand 
people saw the Iowa State aggregation fall before the Old Gold and establish-, 
her claims to the state championship for the season. 
Although not playing the brand of football normally 
exhibited, the Hawkeyes found it no trouble to defeat the Aggies by a 
good margin of 10 to 0. Kaufmann was Iowa's outstanding star, breaking 
through the Ames defense with amazing regularity to cut off the runner 
or to intercept a pass. To him can be attributed the failure of the Ames 
passing game, and he also scooped a number of fumbles that were costly 
to the visitors. 

Thus was the 1919 football season finished, with five victories, two 
defeats and but five points separating us from the conference champion- 
ship. What next year will produce is but a vague conjecture. The 
Freshman team will produce several good men, and but a few of this 
year's stars will be lost to the game. Again, the same coaching staff is 
to return, and it is to that staff of earnest, clean playing sportsmen that 
Iowa owes her reputation athletically. May next year see us topping 
the conference list. 

Possibly there has never been a time at Iowa when the wealth of 

football material from which to build a team was more plentiful than

the season lust passed. Competition tor positions was always not, and Tackle 

Ai'brev Devine 

many games found the sidelines wondering just who would start the after- 
noon's affair. Men like Rich, Parker, Pyles, and Kelly, all good, reliable 
players with plenty of experience, were held in reserve and hurried into the 
game to fill up a gap left open by some injury; and never did they fail when 
called upon to carry the fight into enemy territory. The second string, with a 
personnel that bespoke of both ability and experience, were constantly causing 
worry to the regulars by the manner in which they were able to handle oppos- 
ing teams' plays and to keep the ball going. Men of the capabilities of Jacqua, 
White, Smith, McConnell, Prentiss, and Rath were all able to give the regulars 
trouble when they got into the scrimmage. 

Three full teams were organized at the outset of the season, and although 
many of the members were never carried on the trips, the same Iowa Fight 

spirit prevailed, and as many organiza- 
tions were to be seen on the athletic field 
during the last week of practice as there 
was at the outset. Next year will find 
many men waiting to get into moleskins Clyde Charlton 
that were handdicapped at the start of End 
the present year by inexperience. 

The close of the season found Iowa rep- 
resented on the All-Conference team by 
Belding at end, Slater at tackle on the same 
wing, and Lohman at fullback. Never before has Iowa been 
so represented on the honorary mythical eleven. Eckersall 
granted Iowa the honor of probably being 
the strongest aggregation west of the Missis- 
sippi, and on a par w T ith any in the Big Ten. 
■ Not to be outdone, the Freshman team was 
another aggregation that was noted for the 
heat of competition. The first call issued 
brought something over a hundred of the 
first-year men out, and an additional coach 
had to be secured to care for them, for they were all unknown quantities in 
the football world. Elimination was rapid, indeed, for the first few days, and 
the squad was cut down in a couple of weeks so that it was much easier to 
locate the better material and to shape a strong Frosh eleven. By mid-season 
they were going against the regulars quite often, many times to give them a 
run for honors by using the plays of some opponent to very good advantage. 
What will be the product of this year's training with the Freshmen can only 
be a matter of conjecture, but they can hardly fail to produce results next year 
and make for a better, championship conference team.

OVEMBER twenty-first and twenty-second were great days for the University of Iowa, 
for on those days Iowa City, in gala attire, greeted the largest crowd ever present 
at a university homecoming. Registration headquarters were located in the Y. M. C. A. 
building. Advance hotel reservations had taken all available accommodations, and 
the people of Iowa City were called upon to aid in caring for the incoming visitors, 
but even with this additional help many pep artists 

were forced to go to Cedar Rapids for lodging. 

The mass meeting was held on the Old Capitol 
Oval at five o'clock Friday afternoon, and was at- 
tended by a large and enthusiastic crowd. Many 
prominent alumni were on the program, and the 
new Iowa song was tried out to give the old grads 
an opportunity to catch the tune. Retreat was 
sounded as a fitting close to the evening's cere- 

Promptly at the close of the mass meeting the 
armory was thrown open and the regular alumni 
banquet was in session. The main topic of the 
evening was a discusssion of the Iowa Memorial 
Union and the future of Iowa. Late in the evening 
the meeting was adjourned, and the ancient Iowa 
Fight spirit was indeed prevalent all night. Searle Dondore Flentje 

Saturday morning presented the finest kind of autumn weather, and found the city crowded, 
with every train bringing more alumni. Additional seats had been constructed at the athletic 
field to care for the visitors, but long before the game was called every available place was 

taken, and the fence was lined with specta- 
tors. Even the tree tops and telephone 
poles were occupied. Probably no less than 
twelve thousand people saw the struggle, 
which ended in a 10 to victory for the 
Old Gold. 

It was, indeed, a great game. Iowa did 
not play as well as was to be expected from 
the conference record that had been set, and 
frequent fumbles were costly to both sides. 
Ames was unable to gain consistently, al- 
though at times they did reel off long runs 
that counted materially. At one time the 
stands were brought to their feet by the ad- 
vance of the Aggies to the five-yard line, 
the aeroplane but they were unable to tally the much 

needed score, and in a short time the ball was again out of the danger zone. 

The homecoming celebration was a success. Many were the reunions between men who had 
not had the privilege of getting back to their Alma Mater since the first dark clouds of war had 
hurried them away to take up the sterner duties of national service. These men were probably 
in the majority and in a few cases the khaki was still in evidence. Iowa had never before 
acted as host to such a large and enthusiastic crowd of visitors, and plans are now being made 
for the coming years. May each succeeding year record an equal growth in those who still 
maintain more than a passing interest in their Alma Mater.

Of a bruise or two 

When they follow the jolly football.

With a record of having won six and lost the same number of conference games, fifth place 
in the final standing of Big Ten teams, and the best claim to the state championship, the Iowa 
basket ball season for 1919-20 was one to be regarded as highly successful. Starting out the 
season with but one veteran, Coach James N. Ashmore developed an Iowa quintet from a squad 
green and inexperienced, into one of the best fives in the conference. At one time the Hawks 
were rated as the classiest crew in the Big Ten, being the only team in the 
conference to have downed the Maroons; but toward the middle of the season 
Iowa slumped and dropped in the conference standing, but victories in the last 
two games gave Iowa fifth place and the state championship. 

Coach James N. Ashmore came to Iowa to handle basket ball and baseball as 
a new man and has made good as a coach, for his teams have ranked with the 
best in the conference. A noteworthy feature is that he did this with but a 
small squad from which to pick a varsity. A cold gym was the first disadvan- 
tage with which he had to contend, and on top of this, four of last year's 
varsity had graduated. Prospects looked anything but bright, nevertheless the 
Iowa coach piloted the Hawks through a most successful season with a schedule 
one of the stiffest ever played: twelve conference tilts and seven state games. 

Iowa opened the season December sixteenth, with Cornell, the first of a series 
of three games. Coming here with a three-year team, Cornell downed the Hawk- 
eyes in all three contests. The visitors had a powerful five, and 
this fact, coupled with the poor playing on the part of Ashmore's 
inexperienced quintet, resulted in defeats for Iowa. The Iowa 
coach used every man on the squad in this series to get a line 
on the candidates for the team, and Shimek, McConnell, Worth, 
Nicolaus, Finlayson, Devine, Lohman, Frohwein, and Kaufman 
seemed the best material at that time. Coe followed with a two- 
game series, and these tilts were divided, Iowa losing the first 
one and snowing the Crimson under in the second combat. 

The conference season was opened on the Iowa floor when 
Wisconsin gave us a bad beating, with a score 35 to 18. Low- 
man's five ranked as one of the best teams in the conference, 
although their percentage did not show such a strong team. 

Zulfer, Knapp, and Weston led the Wisconsin attack that 
Iowa could not stop. Shimek was the lone Iowa star, if there 
was such a person, for he counted sixteen points, twelve of which 
were free throws. Minnesota was the next team to rout Iowa 
in a 21 to 19 combat, and although Iowa was ahead until the 
last three minutes, Arnston, the Minnesota forward, broke loose 
for three baskets that won the game. 
Playing Chicago the following night, Iowa lost 37 to 18, and although in the 
lead at one time, the long trip told on them and Chicago found it an easy win. 
Nicolaus and Shimek led for scoring honors with six points each. Another week's 
hard practice put the team in condition for the road trip to Evanston and Mad- 
ison, and playing at Northwestern Saturday night the Hawks hit their stride 
and won a 25 to 13 game for their first Big Ten victory. Shimek counted four 
baskets and six free throws. Sunday the team journeyed to Madison, where the 
Badgers learned of their prowess on the night following in a 21 to 20 tilt. Going 


Kaufman x 


into the second half with the count 17 to 6 against them, Iowa 
oiled in enough points to win, while the Badgers were held to 
jut three points. Shimek was high scorer again, with eleven 
points. Referee Frank Birch stated that Nicholaus' guarding in 
this contest was nothing short of miraculous. 

The Up-State Aggies were the next team to bow to us with a 
score of 27 to 15. Ames started out fast and threw a scare into 


the Old Gold five, but sensational shots by Finlayson, Shimek, and^ 
Nicolaus in the second half ruined their attempts, and the score 
showed well the difference in the two teams. 

Unbeaten in the conference and heralded as the fastest five in 
the Big Ten, Pat Page's Maroons next came to Iowa City only 
to be defeated on the Iowa floor in a 22 to 19 contest that ranked 
as one of the best games ever played on the home floor. Iowa 
played without Captain Nicolaus, who was sick, and this only 
spurred the team to fight harder. Kaufman's guarding was the 
feature in that he held the mighty Vollmer to a single basket. 
Worth caged three ringers, while Devine, put in as a substitute, 
proved the star. This win gave Iowa a .500 average, and the 
Old Gold five were now being ranked as one of the powerful 
quintets of the conference. The Gophers were the next five to lose to Iowa by the one-sided 
count of 30 to 5. Devine led the scoring with five goals, while Shimek and Finlayson rung up 
two apiece. Shimek also tossed seven free throws. This victory put Iowa in fourth place, but 
the crucial test was yet to come, for the Hoosiers were next on the schedule and the winning of 
this battle cinched fourth place for the victors. Stiehm was beaten by a 28 to 20 score, as 
Shimek, Finlayson, and Worth each counted three ringers, the former adding ten free throws 
out of sixteen trials. 

Iowa did not perch long in fourth place, for the trip to Indiana, where the Hoosiers and 
Purdue both won, blasted all hopes for a higher place in the Big Ten. Indiana won an overtime 
game, 25 to 19, when Donovan caged a ringer in the last two minutes of play. Finlayson was 
the Iowa star, with Shimek making seven out of eight free 
throws. Fatigued by the hard game the preceding night, Iowa 
lost to Purdue in a 26 to 21 encounter, which was anybody's until 
Campbell scored three baskets that won the game. Finlayson was 
the Iowa star again, with four baskets, while his floor work was 
regarded as some of the best seen on the Purdue floor. These 
defeats shoved Iowa into fifth place. Purdue came to Iowa the 
following Friday and the Hawkeyes hoped for revenge, but 
Lambert's five gave the Old Gold its worst beating of the year. 
The count was 42 to 26, with Iowa playing the Boilermakers to 
a standstill the first half. The Tilson-Church-Campbell offense, 
the most powerful one seen on the local floor throughout the year, 
ruined Iowa in the second half, and this defeat sent Iowa to 
sixth place. Shimek was the Iowa star with fourteen points to 
| *a his credit. Northwestern then wound up the Iowa conference 
m I card in a tilt won by Iowa 27 to 23. Finlayson, sent in as a 
^^jfc^L substitute, won the game when he dropped in two baskets. The 
WBEgpP" victory gave Iowa an even break in twelve conference contests. 

The last tilt on the schedule was that with the State College 




five, wherein the Hawkeyes strengthened their claim to the state title by dowing Berryman's five 
26 to 19. Devine, Shimek, and Kaufmann led the scoring with three baskets each, while 
Kaufmann's guarding was another feature. All three of his baskets were mid-floor shots. This 
game ended the season for the Old Gold and gave them a record of nine games won and ten 
lost. Prospects for next season are unusually bright, for only two men will be lost this spring, 
Captain Nicolaus and Worth. With the rest of the varsity intact, a strong second team and 
several crack freshmen to pick from, Coach Ashmore should develop a team that will rank 
toward the top in the conference.

ARCH 18, 19, and 20 were interesting days at Iowa City, for those days saw some 
forty-five high school quintets vie with each other to survive the competition that 
necessarily follows in a tournament. Gym classes for both men and women were 
dismissed, and both gymnasiums were placed at the disposal of the visitors. Fraternity 
houses threw open their doors to the newcomers and tried in every way to make the 
visit wholly enjoyable. Even students of the University, several seasons removed 
from their basket ball days of high school, again found opportunity to back the home team. 

Starting early on the morning of Thursday, March 18, games were played with no break 
until the first thirty contests were decided. Both the court at the armory and the women's 
gymnasium were in use and four referees kept the teams busy. The end of the first day saw 
eight teams emerge from the milling undefeated, only to be allowed rest until Friday afternoon, 
when further elimination matches were played. 

It was a great tournament. Dopsters took a hand trying to pick the possible winners, and 
after lengthy explanations decided the issues for themselves at least. By the close of the first 
day's grind most of the dope had been sadly treated. Teams that came with most amiable 
records found reverses awaiting them, and unheard quintets had demonstrated that it's not 
the record that wins preliminary games in a tournament. 

The second day found such strong contenders as East Waterloo, Grinnell, Battle Creek, Iowa 
City, Spencer, and Burlington, wholly eliminated from the race, with Fairfield, Nevada, Union, 
Davenport, Oskaloosa, Indianola, and Springville left to fight it out. Among the best of entries 
in the semi-finals were at least three teams that dopsters had wholly ignored, and the sporting 
public waited impatiently to see who would best stand the strain of the tournament. 

Probably here has never been a more nerve-racking semi-final played within the University 
armory. The first game opened with the Fairfield midgets arrayed against the Union five, and 
although outplaying their opponents during the whole game, Fairfield could not shake the net 
consistently, and lost 7 to 10. Davenport had a hard time defeating Nevada during the follow- 
ing hour, and managed to shade them by one point shortly before the final gun, winning 8 to 7. 
Oskaloosa and Northwood took the floor next, but the speed of the foregoing games was too much 
for Northwood. Oskaloosa rolled up a 19 to 11 score, with the plucky losers fighting hard to 
turn the victors' lead. 

But the games remained to be played ; four teams remained undefeated. Before the last day 
of the tournament Springville had defeated Oskaloosa, and Davenport found Union tired out 
from their four previous games. Both winning teams were able to roll good sized scores 
against the losers. 

Then came the final game. Both teams had rested Saturday for this — the deciding game — and 
evening found the armory packed, waiting for the contestants to appear. The game opened 
with some of the most brilliant playing seen among the high schools this year. Davenport 
took a lead after John, Davenport's shifty forward, had shook the net four times, and held a 
margin until w T ell into the final half, when Yiesley, Springville's forward, broke the jinx and 
led an offensive that electrified the sidelines. A meagre ninety seconds from the final shot found 
the teams tied, fighting desperately to gain a point in that last minute. Butler broke the tie 
from the free throw line, placing Springville in the lead, and the crowd in pandemonium. The 
ball went up at the center again, took to the Springville hoop and a hold was called. Schick, 
Davenport guard, pumped, managed to get the ball and dribbled the whole length of the floor, 
scoring the last basket that won for Davenport 21 to 20.

Captain Glen Greenwood is probably as widely 
known among point winners for the Old Gold as any 
athlete that ever donned the Old Gold. Taking the 
professional course offered in the College of Dentistry, 
Captain Greenwood has been a consistent performer on 
the gridiron along with his track work and academic 
activities. With his giant build and speed he has been 
an invaluable asset to Iowa teams, always leading in a 
cool, masterly fashion. A fitting honor to captain the 
track team in his last year of competition for Iowa. 
In 1918 Iowa had no organized track team because of 
the departure of so many men to the service. Never- 
theless, Trainer Watson sent a small aggregation to 
the state meet, hoping to maintain as best he might a 
bit of Iowa's old status. Instead, the Old Gold athletes 
were able to place in almost every event wherein they 
entered and the final count showed them well up in 
the point winners.

ITH the old S. A. T. C. regime a thing 
of the past, Trainer Jack Watson was 
confronted with finding a suitable place 
for his athletes to condition, since the 
cafeteria of the S. A. T. C. days had 
not been removed from the basement of 
the armory. Training was, therefore, begun on the 
gymnasium floor until the indoor course was finally 
put into shape, and scarcely three weeks remained 
before the first meet was to be held at Ames, 
March 8. 

As a nucleus for the squad, Watson had twelve 
members of the 1918 state championship team and 
a good bunch of yearling recruits from the year be- 
fore. The twelve men were Captain Greenwood, 
Brigham, Smith, Stoner, Mockmore, Justin, Wallen, 
Slater, McDowell, Wahl, Holliday, and Young, 
and all were trying hard to get ready for the first go of the season. 
The actual strength of the team was first exhibited March 5, when tryouts for the Quadrangular 
meet were held. The indoor track was not in the best condition to afford fast time, but Trainer 
Watson found men of sterling ability as well as good prospects for athletes of general develop- 
ment. Three preliminaries were necessary to decide the entries in the 25-yard dash, because of 
the large number of entries, and Justin and Titus were finally conceded to be the winners. 
Leslie Hays made good in the hurdles, and Captain Greenwood, "Buck" smith, and Jack Stoner, 
of last year's mile relay team, performed in standard fashion and don their event. John Cum- 
berland was a new find in the 440-yard dash, and was the fourth member to make up the relay 

Captain Greenwood 






team, while the half-mile event went to the diminutive 
Rosenbaugh in 2:08, and the two-mile jog to Kruse. 

The Hawkeyes invaded the Ames camp for the Quad- 
rangular meet March 8, entering eighteen men, and 
succeeded in winning second place, with a total of 41 
points, Ames taking first, with a 9-point margin, and 
Drake third with but 7 points. Iowa excelled in the 
dashes and weight events, but the distance runners 
lacked the endurance that comes from long training. 
Iowa was not represented at the Big Ten indoor con- 
/Ttff ference meet at Evanston, March 29, with an entire 

I W J squad because of the lack of early training and the 
W 1 large number of aspirants new at the game and who 

I 7 had to be developed gradually. The men that repre- 
sented Old Gold were Justen, Brigham, Kruse, Mock- 
more, Slater, and Titus. Brigham was the only point 
SMNK>* winner, tieing for third place in the high jump \\\{h 
Weghorst, of Purdue, at 5 feet 9 inches. Titus got into 
the finals of the fifty-yard dash and finished fifth in a 
field of twenty. 

With the indoor meets a thing of the past and the weather favorable to allow work outside, 
Watson started with renewed effort to build up a strong team for the dual meets to follow. 
The Drake relays was next on the Iowa schedule, and in the tryouts Titus, one of Iowa's most 
promising dash men, was accidentally spiked by Justen, his running mate, and thus was put out 
for the rest of the season. Charles Colby, who had proved himself to be a sprinter of no mean 
ability in his freshman year, and who did not participate in the indoor work, now came into 
prominence by winning the 100-yard dash in the tryouts for the Drake relays. 

Two relay teams attended the Drake relays at Des Moines, April 19, together with two men 
entered in the special 100-yard dash. Captain Greenwood, Smith, Stoner, and Cumberland 
made up the mile relay, with Justin, Colby, Matthey, and Greenwood in the half-mile relay. 





As a season of dual meets, the record of 
1919 was a complete success, for Iowa won 
three out of the four meets scheduled, and the 
defeat at the hands of Minnesota was due to 
the extreme decisions of the officials as well 
fas the refusal to run the mile relay. The first 
opportunity the home fans had of seeing the 
Old Gold thinly-clads in action was on April 
26, when Iowa downed Coe by a 96 l / 2 to 39 
score. Brigham captured the individual hon- 
ors of the day with 10 points to his credit, 
while Frentiss was the outstanding star for 
Coe, running the quarter in 53 3-5 seconds. 
Justin and Colby were entered in the 100-yard 
dash, competing against the strongest schools 
in the Middle West, Colby winning fifth. 
The half-mile relay team took third place in 
their respective race, the mile relay team fail- 
ing to score. 

One of the prettiest races of the day was the 
two-mile, when Kruse of Iowa, and Preston of Coe, ran down the finish neck and neck, the Old 
Gold runner maintaining a slight lead at the tape. In the relays, the Iowa team managed to 
present themselves at their best, easily winning both the events. 

Iowa fans again saw the Hawkeyes victorious when Cornell came to Iowa City, May 2. The 
final score read 112 to 24. The meet was held during a drizzling rain and on a soggy track 
that made good time impossible, although Cornellians had several men of undoubted ability. The 
mile and two-mile races were won by Browning (C) and Torrence (C) respectively in faster 
time than had been made on the local field during the entire season. The half-mile was the 
hottest contested even of the afternoon, but Browning (C) was unable to pass the stocky Rosen- 
baugh, who broke the tape by a margin of some two yards. Iowa easily won the high hurdles, 
discus, shot, 100-yard dash, and took all three places in the 220 heat. 



f \ 






With the track season half over, Trainer Watson 
began to "speed up" in preparation for the first Big 
Ten dual, to be staged at Minneapolis against the 
Northmen, May 10. Probably there never was a 
meet that so dissatisfied the Iowa aggregation as did 
\J \ the outcome of this, the first conference battle. Many 
of the followers of the Old Gold were indignant to 
the extreme at some of the officials, insisting that 
Colby nosed Holt of the Gophers, out of the 100-yard 
dash by a foot, and tieing in the 220-yard dash. 
However, the judges overruled this and the final 
count was long in the favor of the Northmen. 
Although the mile relay was neither run nor for- 
feited to Iowa, the final score stood 72 to 63. Iowa 
again excelled in the field events, and Kostlan and 
Rosenbaugh won firsts in the 220-yard hurdles and 
half-mile respectively. Iowa offset this defeat by 
trouncing her ancient rivals, Ames, the following 
week end on Iowa Field. 
The Iowa- Ames dual was the big event of the season on the home field; and although Iowa 
was doped to win by a mere two-point lead, with Ames given the decision in each event that 
was in doubt, the Havvkeyes surprised even themselves by 78 points while Ames scored 58. 
Captain Greenwood won individual honors with ten points and Spikes (A) came a close second 
with nine points. The Cyclones came in heavily for their share of honors in the distance runs, 
but failed to tally consistently in the field events and the shorter races, although Lodwick (A) 
sprung a surprise by nosing out Colby (I) in the 220-yard dash. 

When the state meet rolled around, Iowa was in better trim for fast time on the cinders, but 
the dopsters were again wrong, for the Scarlet and Black aggregation 
from Grinnell found their way into the scoring columns to the extent 
of 48 tallies. Ames managed to nose Iowa out of second place by 
one-half point by tieing for second in the mile relay. The remainder 
of the teams stood: Ames 33, Iowa 32^, Simpson 14J/2, Cornell 11, 

Drake 8, Coe 7, Des Moines 5, Morn- 
ingside 5, and Parsons 2. 

As a result of their showing at the 
state meet the week before, Colby, Jus- 
tin, Wallen, Sheedy, Dyke, Brigham, 
and Slater were picked to represent 
Iowa in the Big Ten Conference meet, 
held at Chicago, June 7. Dyke, the 



rangy javelin thrower, was the only Iowa man to score, taking second place in his pet event, and 
chalking up the lone three points for Iowa with a toss of 159 feet and 10 inches. Brigham had 
an "off day", for he was unable to clear the bar at 5 feet 8 inches for third place, although he 
jumped higher consistently in every meet in which he participated. 

Much credit is due Trainer Watson for the year's results, because of the many obstacles that 
prevented an early start, due to the war. Watson had no stars who could go into a meet and 
win the greater part of the points alone, but a well balanced team, with good athletes in all 
events. In Watson Iowa has perhaps the best conditioner of men in the Middle West, and with 
the loss of only five men and the return of men who have been in service, Iowa should be 
represented next year with the strongest team in years. Probably one of the worst blows Iowa 
received during the entire season was when men of sterling ability that could be counted on 
for sure points, were reported from the Registrar's office ineligible. Let's hope that next year 
under the guidance of Captain-elect Leon H. Brigham, Old Man Ineligibility will receive 
a final blow as far as athletics are concerned.

''Bottom" Kruse, Captain 1920 
Cross Country Team 

ISTORY of Cross Country Work at Iowa would 
be anything but glaring in its results so far as a 
team in that sport might be concerned. However, 
it has been very instrumental in developing dis- 
tance runners, the one department wherein Iowa 
\ \ S^^3> | | ; s usually weak. 

A Cross Country Club was organized in 1902 through the 
efforts of Professors Bush and Eastman, and the sport was 
purely local up to 1910, no outside meets being scheduled. 
During this period competition was limited to students only, 
regardless of class status, and prizes were offered for the 
man winning the greatest number of points in a series of 
three runs. The first of this series was over a course of four 
miles, the second six miles, and the last to be ten ten miles. 
In 1902 the last race was run on the cinders, however, be- 
cause of inclement weather. The three individuals with the 
largest number of points at the close of the series were 
awarded sweaters, and the class with the largest aggregation 
of points was given a banner. Dr. Eastman, because of his 
love for the sport, managed the squad personally and kept 
enthusiasm at a high pitch. 

In 1907 a new method was instituted. Each Saturday was 
devoted to a hare and hound chase covering from five to ten 
miles, trophies being awarded to the winners. This sport 
was indeed popular, giving many new men an opportunity to participate, with some hopes of 
remuneration, although meagre. 

Then came Nelson A. Kellogg ,a one-time Michigan track and cross country star, as director 
of athletics for the University in 1910, and with his ability as a coach, the sport received added 
impetus. The Hawkeye squad was that year sent to Madison, Wisconsin, to enter against the 
conference's best, but results were far from encouraging for the Old Gold finished ninth in a 
field of ten starters. 

Director Kellogg secured the conference run for Iowa for the ensuing year, and in a field of 
nine starters Iowa finished sixth. This was the first time that such an event had been staged at 
Iowa, and, of course, it added to the interest. Over thirty men were contestants the following 
year and a team was sent to Chicago, but failed to raise Iowa's status in the sport, although a 
good consistent showing was made. 

The fall of 1913 saw a new individual among the coaches at Iowa. Trainer Jack Watson, 
late of the Iowa State coaching staff, was given charge of the squad, due to his success with 
the Iowa State aggregation. Watson believed in the slow, gradual-developing process. No 
dual meets were listed and the squad looked forward only to the conference run. It came, and 
with it the same jinx that had been so prominent already in Iowa's cross country history. Two 
of the team were unable to compete on the very eve of the race — one was stricken with the grippe, 
the other injured a tendon. Watson entered three men regardless, and Iowa had to be satisfied 
with a very credible showing only. 

Then came the war, causing a slump in the sport due to a lack of men. Cross country then 
became a means of training for the distance runners. No dual meet was even scheduled until 
the current year, when the Hawkeyes met Cornell and won by a small margin over the 

This year saw the sport listed among those worthy of the honorary "I". Five such were 
awarded and new interest will follow the sport that too often is unappreciated. The student 
body is slowly realizing that the man who covers five miles in something under thirty minutes 
has no time to waste viewing the scenery. Iowa has a course that is probably the hardest in the 
Middle West. It is a strain that rarely comes in other major sports where enthusiasm and 
excitement keeps the players always alert and striving to do their best. Cross country offers no 
cheering throngs along the way to keep the pep above par — a few interested fans at the finish 
is all. 

With mechanical stride, weary body and inwardly sick, the cross country runner tiredly jolts 
the final half mile. Like pistons his knees raise and lower. He can't speed them up, but for 
miles they have cried for rest. His hands are big, red, ham-like, numb; his brain is hot — 
burning. And above all there is no one to know if he stops for a short rest, a mere breathing 
spell ; only he and a watch can truthfully assert after the tape has been breasted. Still he jolts 
on, with the same mechanical stride, weary body and aching muscles, trying to clip a meagre 
quarter minute from his last record. 

Meanwhile the student body stoically, even mournfully, scorn the results in the Iowan, and 
casually remark that he is but a fool — as indeed he is who attempts to maintain Iowa's prestige 
for so grateful a student body. Iowa will have to do less remarking and more boosting or Iowa 
will always remain a tail-ender in this sport. 

Jebbins, Sweazy, Kruse. Ristine, Nelson, Biersborn, Goodrich, Burton 


Ristine, Bowie, Kruse, Burton, Biersborn, Goodrich, Watson (Coach) 

HIS school year saw cross country again resumed at Iowa, after an intermission of two 
years. A call was issued for men shortly after the opening of the school term, by 
Trainer Watson, and about twelve enthusiastic men answered. Watson was unable 
to give his entire time to the sport because of the football season, but Dutton, former 
track captain, ably shouldered the duties and at the end of the third week no less 
than thirty men were in intensive training. 

Tryouts were held over a muddy course on November first, and Sweazey broke the tape, fol- 
lowed closely by Goodrich, Ristine, Kruse, Bowie, Biersborn, Burton, and R. C. Nelson. The 
time (30: flat) was excellent considering the course — probably the stiffest in the conference. 

The big race of the year was held November eighth, and Cornell suffered before the Iowa 
thinly dads by a score of 26-29. True to form, "Old Man Ineligibility" made a debut the eve 
of the meet and Sweazey was declared out for low grades and Burton was relied upon to fill his 
place on the squad. 

Chilly weather and a muddy course were handicaps, but the time of 29: 26: 4, was 
announced after Shell of the visitors had breasted the tape a few paces ahead of the diminutive 
Goodrich (I). Following closely came Corlett (C), Ristine (I), and Kruse (I), while not 
more than fifty yards behind, Bowie (I) slowly nosed past Temple (C) for sixth place with 
Day (C), Biersborn (I), Burton (I) and Zea (C) completing the starting list. 

A very creditable showing indeed. Goodrich, Biersborn and Ristine ran their first race 

for Iowa and have two more years to make a name for themselves in this sport. Bowie, a 

junior and Burton, a senior also competed for the first time and the entire squad with the 
exception of Burton will return next year. 

Arthur G. Kruse, the only track veteran, was elected captain of next year's aggregation, 
and with the extremely bright outlook a fast team will in all probability represent Iowa in 
the bigger meets of the state and conference. 


Several years ago the University of Iowa, realizing that if she would attract young athletes 
of promising track ability to her halls, devised a plan whereby the best men of the state should 
meet on Iowa Field in a great high school classic. Instituted over eleven years ago, the plan 
has met with ready and increasing favor until in the year 1919 over one hundred men repre- 
senting twenty-three of the most prominent high schools in the state met in the "Eleventh High 
School Interscholastic Tr'ack Meet". 

As a reward for their efforts, gold, silver, and bronze medals were given to the winners of 
first, second, third, and fourth places in the individual events. The University "I" club further 
awarded a silver loving cup to the man who individually won the most points for his team, while 
the premier reward was a cup given by the Alumni of Des Moines to the team winning the 
highest number of points. In order to retain permanent possession of this cup a team must win 
it three times. West Des Moines won it in 1918. 

The day preceding the meet saw the arrival of many teams from all parts of the state. Met 
at the station as they arrived, they were taken to the various fraternity houses and entertained 
until after the meet. North Des Moines and Cedar Rapids seemed to have the edge of the dope 
due possibly to the showings they had made earlier in the season at the Drake Relays. 

Preliminaries were run off in the morning, giving a classy field of events for the after- 
noon. Although there was no rain during the day, the track was still a pool of water from rains 
during the fore part of the week. This necessitated the shortening of some of the distances and 
the running of others through the flood. 

True to the dope, North Des Moines and Cedar Rapids ran neck to neck until the last two 
events — the pole vault and the half-mile relay — when North Des Moines took the lead by 
winning both. When the points were added the teams stood with North Des Moines 31 points; 
Mason City, 22; Cedar Rapids, 21^; East Des Moines, 17^; West Waterloo, 13; West Des 
Moines, 12}^ ; Davenport, 10 ; Iowa City, 7 ; Newton, 5 ; Oskaloosa, 5, and Goldfield, 4^. 

Brewton of Mason City took individual honors by winning the 100 yard dash, broad jump and 
running a lap with the winning half mile relay team. Jenson of Cedar Rapids was a close 
second with two firsts, winning both the half and the mile events. The Alumni cup went to 
North Des Moines with a total of 31 points. 

Due to a soggy track no fast time was made, although Crawford of Mason City came within 
a quarter second of tieing the record set by Wilson of Iowa City in the high hurdles.

With five conference games rung up in the won column, three in the lost 
division, and a clear claim to the state championship, Coach Howard 
Jones' basball team had, last year, the most successful season that any 
Iowa team has ever enjoyed. For a month in the fore part of the season, 
the Old Gold squad topped the conference ladder, but in the middle of the 
schedule, Michigan's well oiled combination, coached to 
perfection by Carl Lundgreen, former Chicago Cub 
pitcher, forged ahead and left all other conference cham- 
pionship aspirants in the dust as far as any hopes for a 
title was concerned. 

An eastern trip of three games toward the end of the 
schedule wrecked Iowa's hopes for a title. All three 
games were entered on the wrong side of the percentage 
column, and it was the defeat on the Wolverine field that robbed the Hawkeyes 
of second place in the Big Ten. 

Upon the departure of former Coach Maurice Kent to the Badger school, 
Howard Jones was called upon the coach the baseball team, and it may be 
truthfully said that the football mentor attained that same high degree of 
efficiency in the dimond game that had has attained in gridiron circles. In- 
clement weather was the biggest bugbear to the Hawkeyes at the start of the 
year, for most all early games were called on account of wet grounds. 

A four-game series with Coe were the first games for Iowa, but it took nearly 
two weeks before one was played, constant rains keeping the diamonds in any- 
thing but shape for a tilt. A dry day finally happened along, however, and allowed the team 
to take on Coe at Cedar Rapids in the first mix, and Iowa won by a 5 to 2 score. The win was 
largely due to the heavy hitting of Robin Crawford, who counted three hits. Crawford has now 
played his last game for Iowa, as it was learned that the colored athlete died in Chicago last 
winter, of pneumonia. 

Rain cancelled the next Coe game, thus robbing the team of practice for Page's Maroon team,, 
which played here on April 18, and were downed in a 6 to 5 contest. Hamilton's good control 
and judgment had the Maroons safe all the way, while Ehred was the luminary of the game 
with six chances without an error, and his batting a notable factor in the scoring. 

Coe journeyed to Iowa Field for the second go, and the Crimson was again defeated in a 4 to 2 
contest, with Mcllree pitching his first game and allowing but three hits, striking out ten hitters. 
The next game, on April 25, found Iowa at Purdue for a series of two games, the second one to 


be at Urbana the next day. Iowa won from Purdue, 7 to 6, when Hamilton doubled, scoring 
Ehred in the ninth inning. Ehred was again the star with four hits to his credit, while Mcllree 
proved his calibre as a varsity moundsman. The next day Iowa won from Illinois in a 4 to 3 
game, featured by Hamilton's stellar pitching, giving but four hits, and striking out nine batters. 
Hamilton kept Ryan, the Illinois ace, from showing the form with which he was credited and 
caused him to lose his own game because of his inability to field. 

Ames was scheduled to play next, but rain cancelled the game, and Illinois stopped off on a 
western trip long enough to win a 4 to 3 contest, after Iowa led 2 to 1 up to the seventh. Ryan 
was at his best, giving Iowa nine strikeouts, until Cockshoot drove out two hits that scored Iowa 
runs. This was the first loss of the year. 

Cornell was beaten in the first game at Mount Vernon, 5 to 4, and as a result Hamilton cele- 
brated when Cornell came to Iowa Field, for the Iowa pitcher sent twenty-one hitters back to 
the pine boards by the strikeout route. Up to the ninth he had pitched a no hit game, but two 
scratch hits ruined a perfect game. Following closely came Notre Dame and nosed out a 4 to 3 
victory in a tight game played after the Iowa track team had unmercifully trounced Ames in a 
dual meet. Belding pitched his first game for the season and did well, Mcllree taking his 
place in the ninth. 

Things had been looking well for Iowa up to this. Michigan's invasion spoiled it all. The 
score stood 8 to 1, after Hamilton was clouted out of the box and Mcllree again went in to hold 
down the Wolverines. Parks had the Iowa hitters at his mercy, giving but three hits, making 
this their second defeat and one that sent them to third place. The next eastern trip ruined the 
Old Gold's chances for a long list of wins and a higher rating in the Big Ten, for Notre Dame 
won at South Bend by the heavy score of 8 to 0, and the reason can well be stated: "too much 
Pat Murray," an elongated south-paw who finished the season in the leagues. Michigan followed 
and again counted 11 to 1 against us, with Parks going well. Ames was the third and last team 
to defeat Jones' crew. Their score was 4 to 1, after Hamilton blew up in the ninth only to 
stage a comeback May 29 and defeat them 10 to 8 in a rather listless contest. 

After the slump at the end of the season, Iowa braced again and downed Indiana in two 
games. Hamilton's pitching, coupled with fast fielding and hard hitting, were too much for the 
Hoosiers, and a double play by Hamilton, Ehred and Mcllree, and Brownie's running catch 
were the features of the first game. Mcllree worked the second game, winning 5 to 3, after 
Cockshoot drove out a single that iced the contest. Iowa's season closed with a record of ten 
wins and six defeats. Ehred led the batting average with .328, and Crawford second with .280 ; 
Brown and Hamilton were close on to this pair. 

For the most part of the schedule, Jones used the same lineup that started the first contest of 
the year. Changes were made toward the end, however, as the Iowa coach found out what eacb 
man was capable of doing. The final standing in the Conference was as follows:

HIS year has seen Iowa represented in conference aquatic meets for the first time in the 
history of the University. Early in the fall Coach David Armbruster and Captain 
Weidlein issued the call for swimmers, and within a short time training began in 
earnest. Every day saw the candidates for positions practicing backward flips, jack- 
knife dives, plunges, and all the various kinds of strokes; for with three dual and one 
conference contests on the season's schedule, there was no time to waste. Iowa lost 

the dual meet with Chicago by a score of 48 to 29. Point winners for Old Gold in this 
contest were Shephard and Weidlein in fancy diving, Anneburg and Dethlefs in the 440-yard 
dash, and Brown in the 40, 100, and 150-yard dashes. The following evening Iowa met the 
Northwestern team and was defeated by a still greater score, although in many events the 
Iowans far excelled their work in the first meet. Brown took first honors in the 40 and the 
150-yard dashes, Dethlefs second in the breast stroke, and Shephard placed in the fancy diving 
contest. The final score was 67 to 20. A few weeks later Iowa fell before the Minnesota 
team in the first dual meet ever held here. Not until Minnesota took first and second in the 
last event, the 100-yard dash, was the outcome decided, and Iowa took the small end of a 
43-34 score. 

Closely connected with swimming is the Eels Club, an organization founded with the original 
purpose of serving as a life guard along the Iowa river on Sundays, but now embracing all 
aquatic sports in the tank, as well as on the river. Last year the Club conducted a 25-mile 
canoe race on the Iowa river, which is now to become an annual spring event, and beginning 
this year the winners will be given a silver cup. The first race was won by R. L. Rundorff 
and E. K. Katter, in an eighteen-foot canoe.

Modern industry and civilization has decreed that the physically unfit, the undersized, and the 
weakling must make way for the man with endurance and dexterity. Competition has, in the 
twentieth century, became so keen and exhaustive that only the strong and healthy are able to 
stand the pace set by present day business, and every year the battle grows fiercer. The 
weakling must slowly give up to the able-bodied, and slowly these weaker ones assemble at san- 
itariums and health resorts, sardonic monuments to the terrific pace we, as a people, travel. 

But the University of Iowa says that no man shall leave her halls without first knowing, as far 
as possible, the rudimentary facts of self care. The weak and awkward are given the same 
chance to develop into the agile and strong. It is the aim that every man enrolled under the 
"Old Gold" shall participate in this training, and be given the opportunity to take special work 
in this very important field of physical training; and he may further fit himself by training to 
teach this ever growing subject. 

At the opening of school every freshman is given three thorough examinations: medical, phys- 
ical, and swimming. If the newcomer is a runt, knock-kneed, or has a roar in his chest, the 
examiner gets him, and if he fails to pass up the swimming requirements, a special class has 
a new student. All freshmen and sophomores are assigned classes that meet twice a week and 
no excuses are accepted unless for physical disability. 

Classes are under the direct supervision of "Dad" Schroeder, and at first the elements of drill 
and the care of the body are taught, only to be followed by special work in dumbbells, Indian 
clubs, apparatus and trapeze work. Succor football, basket ball, and track work are also added 
to encourage participants in the major sports. 

Men unable to swim are trusted to the care of Mr. Armbruster, where instruction is given in 
all the different strokes of plain and fancy swimming, together with work in diving and rescue 
work. Those who become proficient are encouraged to try for the swimming team and similarly 
those who show possibilities in gymnastics are encouraged to try for the gym team. 

As a result of this policy, Iowa is now represented by a student body that is physically fit.

NY man given to signs, and having a solid belief therein, would have been forced 
to admit that Iowa was destined to have a great wrestling team for the year. But 
signs, like people, have a tendency to get mixed at times, and although the season 
opend with several husky mat artists in good trim, the majority were freshmen, and 
had little actual experience. Jenson and White were the only veterans of other 
meets, and with them as a nucleus "Dad" Schroeder and "Pat" Wright began 

the building of a team. 

The first call brought out men of all weights, and the final tryouts, held prior to the Indiana 
meet, placed the following men on the team: Edward Vana, 125 pounds; John P. Sweeney, 
135 pounds; Otto Mendenhall, 145 pounds; Glen Devine, 158 pounds; Leland White, 175 pounds, 
and John Heldt, heavyweight. LeRoy Jenson, 145 pounds, was named captain, but due to 
injuries was unable to try out for the first matches. 

The jinx soon got on the job. Sweeney was declared ineligible; Devine and White were 
quarantined at the Sigma Nu house; Heldt was called to the bedside of his sick father. The 
necessary substitutions were made as early as possible, and a crippled team went against Indiana. 
Francois, entering the 135-pound class, won the only fall for the Old Gold, and the invaders 
secured 32 points to Iowa's 6. 

In the dual meet with Illinois, Iowa was defeated by the close score of 21 to 16. Francois 
was again the only man to win' a fall, although Vana won a decision, and Captain Jenson was 
given a draw with his man after the three regular and two extra trials. 

At press time for the Hawkeye there is still one meet to be entered by Iowa. The Western 
Intercollegiate Wrestling, Fencing and Gymnastic Meet will be held at Urbana April 9, and 
Iowa will be represented by a team of five, and by that time they should make a very good 
showing, indeed. 


Many individuals come to Iowa wholly unable to swim, but few indeed are they who are 
graduated without some knowledge of the ins and outs of swimming. Incoming freshmen are 
made to pass a swimming examination, and if unsatisfactory, are placed in a class for instruction. 
No sophomore completes his physical training requirements until the diving examinations have 
also been passed. 

As a place to spend a pleasant hour of recreation, the pool is indeed popular, as evidenced 
by the large number of men that crowd the pool-room every evening. 


HE Howling Three Hundred Club represents a booster organization consisting of 
approximately three hundred live, fighting, inspired boosters and backers of Iowa 
athletics. The immediate aim of the club is fourfold. Primarily, the club is to 
promote a more wholesome and concentrated Iowa spirit. The club seeks to develop 
and perpetuate that sense of individual responsibility toward University welfare to 
the end that forty-five hundred students at Iowa will also represent forty-five hundred 
jor Iowa. Three hundred members of a "for Iowa" club intend to to give the student body of 
the University, by precept and by practice, a conception of what true, vitalized school spirit 
means; and by providing momentum which will gather strength as it travels outward from 
the centralized organization, will make an Iowa spirit for the student body represent what 
"Iowa Fights" is for the athletic teams. The Howling Three Hundred will conduct mass- 
meetings before athletic contests, provide for the printing, distribution, and learning of Iowa songs 
and yells, and furnish trained and efficient yell-leaders for each college. 

The second function of the club will be the establishment of wholesome school traditions. A 
number of proposals, such as the w y earing of class-distinction caps, corduroys, and cut-days have 
been generally favored for a number of years and need only the official stamp of approval from 
some such body as the Howling Three Hundred Club to bring them into effect. Proposals of 
merit will be thoroughly considered and definite action taken upon them. 

A third purpose of the club will be encouragement of active participation in athletics. Men 
of ability will be urged to use their talent for the strengthening of Iowa athletics. Too often 
"parlor athletics" claim able athletes with the result that men who should be fighting for Iowa 
are found sitting in the bleachers with their fairest co-ed friend. The Howling Three Hundred 
plans to "put it up" to these men, and combat the "let-George-do-it" spirit. 

Finally, the club seeks to establish connections with Iowa Alumni for the purpose of bringing 
real pressure to bear upon promising high school athletes. Alumni support will be of actual 
value only when definitely attached to and associated with aggressive student effort. In con- 
junction with the many loyal Iowa Alumni, the Howling Three Hundred Club will be able to 
bring a large number of desirable men to this school. The accomplishment of these} aims 
mvolves the efforts of the school's best red-blooded men. It is not a task for the anaemic or 
half-hearted, and the club welcomes only whole-hearted, unselfish supporters. Membership is 
necessarily restricted to men and, in order that it may be a pure student-body organization, 
members of the faculty are excluded. Every member will have a part in the program of work 
which the club proposes to carry out. Each member will do some real and tangible work for 
Iowa. The Howling Three Hundred Club is a pep nucleus. It is concentrated, vitalized, 
Iowa spirit.

Oh Iowa, calm and secure on thy hill, 

Looking down on the river below 
With a dignity born of a dominant 

Of the men that have lived long ago; 
O, heir of the glory of pioneer days, 

Let thy spirit be proud as of old, 
For thou shalt find blessing and honor 
and praise 
In the daughters and sons of Old 

We shall sing and be glad with the 
days as they fly 
In the time that we spend in thy 

And in sadness we'll part when the 
days have gone by 
And our paths turn away from thy 

Till the waters no more in the river 
shall run, 
Till the stars in the heavens grow 

We shall sing of the glory and fame 
thou hast won 
And the love that we bear for Old 

Women's athletics have, like many other things about 
the University, taken on a new aspect within the last 
few years and is slowly gaining a permanent place in 
the actual life of the campus. The Iowa Women's 
Athletic Association has drawn up new requirements, 
and the women's gymnasium is the scene of greater 
constant activity than even before. Among other 
things, women are now allowed to earn an "I" for sat- 
isfactory completion of certain requirements, and sports 
are rapidly taking place of the usual torture and dis- 
comfort of the regular gymnasium courses. Before the 
swimming requirements were added to the courses, very 
few women really knew of the sport that could he had 
in the pool ; but now it is a mecca for all women and 
is becoming a place to spend extra half hours in gen- 
uine enjoyment. This is also true of a number of 
other sports about the department, although not so 
marked as swimming. 

The changed outlook on the women's athletics by the 
partakers of such work may be attributed to many and 
varied sources. The regular hard and fast rule of 
three hours of gymnasium work for the year has been 
eliminated, and in its place the student is allowed to 
take two hours gym and elect such other sports, dancing, 
swimming, or heavy apparatus, to fill the remaining hour. New sports are always being added 
and something new may be found in approved lists every quarter. Fieldball was first introduced 
at Iowa at the last Homecoming celebration, when two teams representing the Sophomores and 
Freshmen took the field ahead of the pushball contest, and staged a most interesting game for 
the many spectators. Skiing, coasting, and skating are all among the newly added and approved 
diversions. During the Christmas vacation the Physics and Engineers' hills were scenes of many 
such parties, while later on, in the colder part of January, the Iowa river became the busiest 
places for lovers of sport. 

The actual teaching staff now numbers seven, all graduates of some school of physical educa- 
tion. Miss Mary R. Lyons, Acting Head of the department, is a graduate of Wellesley, 1915; 
Miss Edith Goodenough, instructor in dancing, a graduate of Oberlin College, 1910, and has 
taken special work at Chicago and Columbia; Miss Mariam Taylor, General Gymnastics, a 

Marion Lyon 


Baker, Meardon, Kimm, Hull, Graves, Thompson 

graduate from Grinnell, 1910, and from the Chicago School of Physical Education, 1919; Miss 
Anne Boillin, instructor in swimming, is a graduate from the Sargent School, 1918, and Miss 
Rachel D. Sickman, Manuary Therapy, a graduate from the Sargent School. 

The year past has been a decided success from the standpoint of interest in the courses. Inter- 
sorority basket ball was introduced, and if the women had direct access to an athletic field of 
their own, there is little doubt that baseball would also be a very popular sport. As it is, there is 
no field whereon the women can play without intruding onto the regular men's field. This they 
do in case of a game of hockey, but tennis courts are not then available. Early last spring, 
when the tennis tournament was about to be played, there was no place where the matches 
could be played, and finally they had to be abandoned. 

To increase the general spirit of participation, good fellowship, and co-operation, the Iowa 
Women's Athletic Association holds a distinct place in the welfare and training to Iowa Women. 
This association is directly under supervision of the Board in Control of Women's Athletics, 
consisting of the officers of the association, chairman of the point and membership commttees, 
class representatives, and the instructional staff of the department. This board acts as an ad- 
visory body and looks after the handling of the interclass games. Originally, it was the custom 



Evans, Hayes, Thompson, Napp. 
Timby, Kimra, Graves, Baker. 

for all women in the University to be members, but now old members must do a certain amount 
of work to retain their standing in the organization, while new members must come up to certain 
requirements to be admitted. These requirements are to complete any one of the following to 
the satisfaction of the Board of Control: (1) the taking of four five-mile hikes with at least 
three companions; (2) making a position on the first or second team in volley ball, basket ball, 
fieldball, baseball, or any of the other class teams; (3) attendance two times a week to volley 
ball, basket ball, or baseball classes, for which no credit is given ; (4) swimming in the recrea- 
tional hour on the average of twice a week for at least nine weeks. 

For exceptional work in athletics or good, consistent work in the department, the association 
awards a specified number of points, and after gaining a proper number of these points, the 
honor letter, an old gold "I", on a black background, is awarded. These are approved by the 
Board in Control of Athletics, and although there has been some little dissention by the wearers 
of the letters earned on the gridiron and cinders, as to whether this letter should be awarded to 
women, there can be no doubt that the system whereby they are awarded is fair and square. At 
present but nine women in the whole University are wearers of this emblem. 


The campus of the University of Iowa sees no less than eight different publications through 
the school year. Of them five are controlled by under-graduates and but two are in the hands 
of the faculty. The Transit, the organ of the College of Applied Science, has but one edition 
a year, while the Alumnus passes through a monthly edition, as does the Organizer. Frivol, 
Iowa's new humorous magazine, has no definite time for publication, choosing such days as 
Valentine's or April Fools' days for appearance. The Iowa Law Bulletin is a digest of Iowa 
law for the Iowa legal profession and, like the Alumnus, goes throughout the state. 

It is a unique distinction at Iowa that the student body own and control both the newspaper 
and annual. Both are handled on the corporation plan, and three faculty men plus four elected 
students make up the board of trustees that name the editors and business managers, and care 
for such other business as is connected with a publication. For the Hawkeye, the student 
trustees are named at the general election and must be sophomores elected to serve in their junior 
year. For the Daily Ioivan, a special election is held, and the candidates must also be sophomores. 

Further, Iowa has a publicity service that sends news throughout the state and to every editor, 
large or small. This is a regular part of the University — a branch of the duties of the University 
Editor- — -and is in no direct way connected with the department of journalism. 

Aside from this the State Historical Society of Iowa publishes the Iowa Journal of History and 
Politics, a magazine of about one hundred and fifty pages, quarterly; but this is not a student 
publication, being a part of the State Historical Society program.

Published five times a week and property of the student body, The Daily Ionian holds a coveted 
place on the campus as a medium of student opinion. Handled by the Daily Iowan Publishing 
Company, it is under the direction of a board of seven trustees, four of whom are juniors 
elected from the sophomore class at a special election, while three are appointed by the president 
and serve indefinitely. Connected with the department of journalism, The Ioiuan serves a double 
purpose on the campus, and has been instrumental in bringing about several reforms, such as the 
Student Council and discussion of the Honor System. 

The staff is:

"When tired of life, read Frivol," is the only pun known to the editor of Iowa's new humorous 
publication, Frivol. Not since the "Medicine Man" became defunct some years ago has there 
been any attempt to edit such a publication until Sigma Delta Chi, men's journalistic fraternity, 
joined with Theta Sigma Phi, women's journalistic organization, in the publishing of this new- 
comer. From the outset it has meet with success, encountering, of course, the same obstacles 
every such magazine would. Having no definite time of appearance, it comes out on such days 
as Valentine's, April Fools', and Commencement days. 

The keynote of this new magazine may well be summed in this statement of the editor, 
immediately following the first issue: "Frivol will attempt, as it grows, to concentrate in its 
pages the life, wit, and levity of the student body; it will set a premium on nonsense and glorify 
the ridiculous. And let no one, because of his erudition, hesitate to unbend, or to frolic, for 
'the most exquisite folly is made of wisdom too finely spun'."

To better acquaint Iowa business men with the School of Commerce and to better acquaint the 
School of Commerce with the Iowa business men is the function of The Organizer, the new 
publication dealing with commercial problems and news. This is the first attempt Iowa has 
seen to have such a magazine on its campus, but it has had very good success to date, and is 
distributed state wide. The board of publication appears on the opposite page.

O MORE does the position of Editor-in-Chief of the Hawkeye become a bone of con- 
tention among politicians. Those great days when the editor left town in a Cadillac 
or box car, as the case chanced to be, have been added to history as a part of the 
"good old days". A more modern and businesslike method has been accepted and 
tried out, — a system that eliminates the chance of private enterprise. The Hawkeye, 
Incorporated, is controlled by a body of seven trustees, four elected by the sophomore 
class at their general election, and three appointed by the President of the University from the 
faculty. This board names the executive officials of the publication and transacts such business 
as comes before it in that connection. 

The 1921 Hawkeye has steered a new and uncharted course. It has known no actual, duly 
elected business manager, and has eliminated all advertising from its pages in an attempt to 
produce a volume that is primarily a history marred in no way by commercial propaganda. 

The staff has been larger than usual, probably, but more territory has been covered in return, 
and a larger sale has been registered than in previous years. 


The staff of the Hawkeye are named by the editor immediately following the election of the 
editor and business manager. The staff for the current year follows:

The Ioiva Alumnus began publication in 1903, the organ of the University of Iowa Association, 
and today circulates throughout the state and nation. Published monthly during the school 
year, The Alumnus enjoys a large circulation on the campus alone, always carrying some articles 
of local interest as well as those primarily for old grads. A noteworthy feature about this 
magazine lays in the work it can do assisting the Iowa Memorial Union along in the million 
dollar campaign. 

The Ioiva Alumnus is the only magazine of its type that circulates very widely on the 
campus that is not a student publication, although the business manager is usually a senior in 
the College of Liberal Arts. 

The publication committee and editorial staff follows: 

Forest C. Exsign, Chairman 
John C. Parish Harold Chamberlin 

Grace Partridge Smith Editor-in-Chief 

J. Mel. Hickersov Business Manager 


During the days of the war when man power was constantly being mobilized into training 
camps, or was already in active service, the University Players, like many other such organ- 
izations, fell into a period of inactivity from which it has just emerged during the current year. 
For the first time in a number of years it has staged productions worthy of its capabilities. 
With a deleted membership that had to be rebuilt before the work could be carried forward, 
the club started the year with few hopes of regaining the former prominence that it once held. 
In return, the year has been most successful in more ways than one. 

Not only did the organization grow, but through good management the services of Verne 
Foley, a former graduate of the institution and a member of the club during his collegiate days, 
were secured for the mid-season production of "Nothing But The Truth". Coming from New 
York City, where he studied dramatics prior to his entrance into the field of law, the Dramatic 
Club could hardly have found a better qualified coach, nor one who produced so satisfactory 
results in a short period of time. 

Tryouts for membership are held about twice during the year, and seldom more than ten are 
chosen at any one time. No requirements as to membership in colleges are insisted upon, 
although the applicant must have attained sophomore standing, no freshman being able to appear 
in a University performance. 

But dramatics are not left alone to the University Players. The law students are noted 
for their ability at staging minstrels, a now recognized event of the season. With their 
abundance of talent for both the producing and writing a play, they always have a good 
production and draw large audiences. This year has seen a very remarkable Law Jubilee. 

Not to be outdone the engineering students also, during their Mecca celebration, stage 
their annual theatrical, although a different system prevails to a slight degree. Both colleges 
write their own play, and stage them alone. The engineering students, however, make no 
charge for their performance, while the Laws spend a great deal that must be regained by 
door admission. 

Then, too, the literary societies usually add to their coffers by producing some play. This 
year two such productions were staged with good success.

During the strenuous times of war dramatics at Iowa were on the decline and not until the 
current year have they again attained the place they once held among the activities of the campus. 
Few or no really distinctive productions were given in that time. It lay to this year to revive 
the dramatic art on the campus. 

On the evening of' February 24, the University Players scored the decisive success of the year 
with their presentation of the delightful three-act comedy, "Nothing but the Truth". Many 
believed the Dramatic Club to be a defunct organization, since its activities had been limited 
during wartime, and there had been no noticeable reorganization. The services of Verne R. 
Foley, an alumnus of Iowa, connected with a law firm in New York, were secured and as director 
of the production he proved his capabilities as an actor.

The evening of March eleventh saw the Englert Theatre packed, for the Laws were presenting 
their annual Jubilee. Written by members of the college, and produced entirely by local talent, 
the Laws have an enviable reputation at handling this event, always producing their plays at 
large expense and to a large house. 

In three parts, "The Big Event", "The Great Outdoors", and "The Jubilee", with scenic 
effect and staging second to none of the current year, it was the greatest success ever attained 
by any minstrel in Iowa City. Especially were the musical productions well received. The

Time-honored custom has it in the College of Applied Science that a good play must be an 
original play. Accordingly, a committee is appointed early in the school year to look after the 
writing of a suitable play for the Mecca Week celebration. Another custom that prevails in 
the College of Applied Science, and one that is possibly the most unique, is that no admission is 
ever charged for the play. Each student contributes a set sum to the general fund, and in turn 
gets a number of tickets with which he may do as he pleases, alloting them to friends who he 
desires to see the play. 

Mecca Week for 1919 came during the third week in March, with the theatrical production, 
"Will It Come To This?" staged two nights in succession at the Englert Theatre. Original in 
its composition and stage business, and looking into the future when the Psychopathic Hospital 
shall have been completed across the river, its irony was unusually good and was indeed well

HE women's extemporaneous speaking con- 
test is open to all women of the Univer- 
sity and offers to them possibilities for 
excellent talks. Each is given a subject, 
allowed a set time to organize a five 
minute speech, and then called upon to 
deliver their work before the judges, who select 
the best on a basis of organization, facts presented, 
and manner of presentation. The following were 
entered in this year's competition:

ACH spring the Northern Oratorical 
League, which is composed of the larger 
universities and colleges of the mid-north- 
ern United States, holds its contest. To 
represent the university in such a con- 
test is in itself a distinction, but last year 
for the first time in a number of years, honors of 
the contest were awarded an Iowa cuntestant, Robert 
Aurner, then a senior in the College of Liberal Arts 
and now in the College of Law. The oration must 
be original and preferably on some question of 
present-day interest.

The reception in honor of the new members of the faculty given annually by President and 
Mrs. Walter A. Jessup, was held in the Women's Gymnasium, Friday evening, October 31. 
The occasion was formal. More than six hundred invitations were sent out to members of the 
faculty, and nearly as many responses were received by the hosts. 

The main floor of the gymnasium was decorated with green plants, palms, ferns, and American 
flags. President and Mrs. Jessup were foremost in the receiving line and introduced the old 
faculty members to the new members, who composed the remainder of the line. 

The guests were entertained at dinner following the formal reception.

UR selection of representative Iowa 
Women has been based, as stated in the 
1919 Hawkeye, first of all, "upon Spirit 
— that indescribable something which 
makes Iowa what she is, which makes 
her live and glow in the world today; 
that something that makes her alumni potent forces 
in the present-day world of thought and action. 
Then Competency has been considered an indis- 
pensible asset. Whether or not these women have 
proved adequate, capable, fitting, where most needed 
has been the big question. 

"And, last of all, they have been judged by the 
severe test of Womanliness, which carries with it so 
much of esteem from one's fellow-men, of the power 
to stand for the best, and of a deep and lasting per- 
sonality; womanliness, which demands that these 
women be worthy of the finest traditions of this 
democratic institution. . . ." 

We hope for your approval in the following pages. 

Bepregentattoe OTomen 

To select, or attempt a selection of any definite number of women 
from the two upper classes, and to definitely state that Iowa is best 
represented by them and their achievements would, on the face of 
it, be an impossibility. Human nature, personality , ability in the 
various activities all enter into such a selection of what we choose 
to call Iowa's Representative Women. We can hardly hope the 
campus will agree wholly with us in our final selections. Mayhap 
there are one or two individuals that will be questioned. Certain 
we are that each will find a champion, and each a doubtful wonderer. 

The first section of this nature in an Iowa annual appeared in 
1917, when the HAWKEYE was still an individualistic enter prize., 
Each succeeding volume has contained some such section until now 
it seems to be a fast, though unwritten, rule that no annual's review 
shall have been completed until the representative women have been 
named. True, there have been times when popular election on the 
campus determined the winners. Various methods have found 
favor at different times. We, of the thirteenth volume, are using 
another method still, while not original, is quite successful, we 

From out of the student body we have chosen various leaders in 
the many activities, both men and women, student and faculty, and 
asked that they submit a list of what they believed to be truly Rep- 
resentative Iowa Women. No definite number was specified, except 
the qualifications introductory to this section. These individuals 
submitting lists have, as a rule, not known the others who did like- 
wise, and in each case the lists were copied and destroyed. Some 
two dozen such lists were received bearing from six to twenty names. 
In all cases the editor reserved the right to accept or reject any or 
all entries, that upon a more minute consideration were found im- 
properly placed. 

Thus it is with a feeling of satisfaction, indeed, that the editor of 
the 1921 HAWKEYE presents these, Iowa's Representative Women. 
In our selections we have attempted to be fair and impartial. 
Foregoing annuals have selected from four to eighteen representa- 
tives, and among those still connected with the institution may be 
found Misses Violet Blakeley, May Disert, Marjorie Heberling, 
Mary Anderson, and Helen Evans. 

The University of Iowa can be justly proud of her women. 
They are worthy , of her most sacred traditions. They reflect the 
true spirit of a great, and ever growing university.

Many of the season's social events that form the bulk of the year's program are to be listed 
among the various fraternity and sorority dinner dances and parties. Every organization on 
the campus of such a nature, has at least one such event during the school year, oftentimes more. 
During the current year all the class parties, except the Freshman parties, have again been 
formal, as in pre-war days. 

From the Balcony at the Junior Prom, Friday, March 5, 1920 


The University of Iowa, with its many students representing every section of the globe, has 
within its confines many who vary greatly on the question of religion. There are those from the 
Orient who bring with them their own creeds and adapt them to our western civilization. 
Protestant and Catholic are alike represented, and within a radius of four blocks from the campus 
there are no less than eleven churches, and co-operating with these are some six or seven 
religious student organizations. These same students mingle every day in class-room and on 
the campus, and in its sphere religion is a much discussed subject. The University vespers 
services place within the opportunity of the student body many speakers of national and inter-

national reputation. The Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A. are both active organizations with 
large and active memberships. The various churches offer student pastors and conference houses 
for the disposal of the students and no bars are lifted to anv belief that proves itself sincere. 

The Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A. are both well represented on the campus and officers 
are elected for both by popular vote. This election is called in the early spring, although both 
organizations do not elect at the same time, and the president appoints a cabinet to care for the 
various departments from the membership at large and proceeds to take charge of the business 
of the organization, keeping in close touch with the general secretary at all times. The mem- 
bership drive is staged shortly after the school year begins and a thorough canvass of the entire 
student body is conducted, the fee of membership being whatever contribution the student feels 
able to make. The interest is growing more and more each year. In the last elections held 
on our campus for the president of the Y. M. C. A. a greater percentage of the membership 
voted than had ever before. 

Since Close Hall has been closed to active work by these associations, they have been forced 
to locate in temporary headquarters, the Y. M. C. A. in what was originally the school of 
music, at the corner of Iowa Avenue and Clinton Street, while the Y. W. C. A. now has head- 
quarters in the Liberal Arts building. Both are hoping, along with many other campus activities, 
to obtain suitable headquarters in the proposed Iowa Memorial Union. Both associations reach 
all colleges on the campus, although the greater membership is to be expected in the College of 
Liberal Arts, because of its greater attendance.

ITH an idea of establishing a May Day tradition at the University, committees from 
the Young Men's Christian Association and the Young Women's Christian Association 
started work early in March with a set purpose of staging a festival — an event in 
which everv college and every organization on the campus was to be a participant. 
The result was the Iotuaiva. The name is one selected in a competition contest held 
bv the general committee in order to arouse an early enthusiasm in the festival. 

Iowazva is an Indian word, meaning "big noise". 

From the word one may draw conclusions as to the nature of Iowawa. Midways with blatant 
barkers, confetti of many colors, vaudeville acts par excellence, tea gardens with aromatic 
odors, dances with graceful dancers — all these and more were included in the first Iowawa 
held at the armory and the women's gymnasium on Saturday evening, May 1. The first 
festival was successful from every standpoint. 

Among other features included in the Iowawa was the All Fools' Jubilee, which in previous 
vears had been held as a separate event on the campus. Out of eleven organizations entering the 
trvouts held on Friday and Saturday, April 23 and 24, but four survived the scrutiny of the 
judges, and these staged their stunts in connection with the Iowawa. Fifty dolLars in prizes 
were divided among the Athena, Hesperian-Zetagathian, and Whitby literary societies and the 
Nurses organization. All of the stunts brought forth unstinted applause from the audience. 

From the first the social committee of the University gave its full co-operation in making the 
Iowawa a success. It not only approved the festival, but it recommended that all fraternities, 
sororities and other social organizations on the campus leave the night of May 1 open so that every 
student might give the festival the backing which it needed. The response from the fraternities 
and sororities was instantaneous. Several of them immediately cancelled parties and dances 
scheduled for that night. The result was an "overflow" crowd at the armory when the 
Iowiggle, the new dance, was announced. 

On the Midway, where barkers shouted forth the wares and exhibitions of fourteen booths, 
crowds surged throughout the evening. With Forty-niner shows, illusion houses, crazy cot- 
tages, chamber of horrors at the right of them, and minstrel shows, Japanese novelties, circus 
freaks and fortune tellers at the left of them, the crowd has little difficulty in finding amuse- 
ment. It was gala night on the Midway and the carnival crowd lived up to the meaning of the 
word Iowawa. They made noise like an armistice day. 

Candy, cakes, pies, and doughnuts were donated to the festival by the women of Iowa City 
and the University. Three hundred pounds of sugar was purchased by the general committee 
and turned over to the six best candy makers in Currier Hall — the women's dormiton • — who 
promptly converted it into sweet candy for the refreshment booths of the Midway. 

A new system of coinage was another novelty introduced with the Iowawa. The finance 
committee hit upon the scheme of using what was known as Iowampum, and the idea worked 
well. Each "wamp" was worth $.0319, and were sold in qualities of twenty-five cents, fifty 
cents and one dollar. Admittance to all booths on the Midway, the dance, and the sale of all 
refreshments was by Iowampum only. 

The general committee in charge of the festival follows:

Originally the two Young People's Christian societies were housed in this building, as were 
the literary societies. Until the S. A. T. C. regime, when it was turned into a barracks for the 
men, it formed a nucleus for religious activities. Fire destioyed the interior to a small extent 
about this time, and the Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. have now found other quarters elsewhere, 
the Y. W. in the liberal arts building, and the Y. M. in the old school of music building at the 
corner of Iowa Avenue and Clinton Street. 

ESPITE the fact that the world is tired of 
even the mention of war, this year has wit- 
nessed a great forward stride in the Military 
Department of the University. The number 
of cadets registered is about one thousand, as 
compared to approximately six hundred last 
year. With the opening of school last October, work 
in the department started with a punch. Rifles were 
issued to all and the greater part of the men were sup- 
plied with complete uniforms. Before the coming of 
November's cold limited the drill field to the basement of 
the armory, the freshmen had received the greatest part 
of their fundamental instruction in the School of the 
Soldier, Squad, Platoon, and Company, and had learned 
how to go through the manual of arms with comparative 

Instructions for the most part is given by sophomore 
squad leaders under the direct supervision of cadet and 
departmental officers, often men who, until their return 
to school, held ranks in the army and are indeed able 
to maintain a high degree of proficiency. With the 
coming of cold weather, two of the three drill periods 
of the week were set aside for work in 
Military Theory, although the influenza 
scare a few weeks later forced the 
abandonment of one of these periods 
where Major Mumma lectured to the 
entire regiment at the Natural Science auditorium. This period has not as yetl 
been resumed. Now, with the coming of spring, plans are being laid for real | 
intensive training and, according to the latest reports from the office of Major 
Mumma, batallion and regimentat maneuvers will be held on Saturdays as soonf 
as the weather permits. H 

The Military Department has won distinction both for itself and for the 
University by being ranked first on the military accredited list of all the schools 
in the Central Department. Iowa now has an excellent chance of winning a 
place — and a high one, too — among the ten "special distinction" schools of the; 
United States. Such a rating will be a great honor indeed, and it will speak 
especially well of the men who were but recently engaged in the great war and j 
are now holding the reins of our Military Department. 

Not only has there been a great growth in the number of cadets, but the number 

Major Morton C. Mumma 

of units and the personnel of the instructional staff has also been increased. Units of the Motor 
Transport and Engineers Corps have been established in addition to those of the Infantry, Hos-- 
pital, Signal, and Medical corps of former years. 

Major Morton C. Mumma, Commandant of the Cadet Regiment and head of the Department 
of Military Science and Tactics, is not only prominent in his present capacity, but has gained a 
national reputation for efficient and valuable work during the late war. 
Major Mumma holds the distinction of being the best shot in America, 
and during the spring and summer of 1918 he was in charge of the 
Small Arms Firing School for Officers at Camp Perry, Ohio. His 
military reccrd, both here and elsewhere, is a matter of common knowledge, 
and the University realizes its good fortune in having again as its military 
head such a thorough soldier and gentleman as Major Mumma. 

The commissioned officers who are assisting in this year's work are Captains 
Frederick R. Palmer and Albert L. Lane. Captain Palmer is to have charge 
of the Motor Transport Corps unit, recently established, and Captain Lane has 
charge of the Engineering section. Both have splendid military records and 
will be especially valuable to Major Mumma. Non-commissioned officers now- 
attached to the Military Department are Sergeant-Major Wm. DeForest 
Rahming, well known as a member of former rifle teams; Sergeant Jacob 
Maier, now serving his third year here; First Sergeant John A. Lawrence, 
retired, who has over thirty years' continuous service to his credit; Sergeant 
Joseph Banker, Infantry; Sergeant Fay Miller, Infantry; Sergeant Conrad 
H. Kimmel, Hotor Transport Corps; Master Engineer Louis J. Law. The 
Military Department is expanding to meet the needs of the school; the 
addition of new departments and the appointment of new and efficient instructors is keeping 
the bilitary branch of Iowa up to the pre-war standard, and equal to any in the country.

Although the University of Iowa does not give as much space 
to music among other activities as do many universities, it is by 
no means neglected. Two glee clubs are maintained, all open 
to competition for places and under the supervision of the School 
of Music. Tryouts for these two clubs occur early in the school 
year, and it is no small task to determine just who shall be chosen 
when some seventy-five or hundred men try out for perhaps four 
vacancies on the club. The personnel is subject to revision at any 
time, however, throughout the year. The women's club is han- 
dled in the same manner, and both organizations are directed 
by Prof. W. E. Hays, voice instructor. 

The band, usually number somewhere in the neighborhood of 
forty pieces, is directly connected with the military department, 
and is directed by O. E. Van Doren. As a part of the R. O. T. 
C. Regiment, freshmen and sophomores are allowed military 
credit for ''making the band". This adds interest to the activity 
and maintains keen competition for places. 

These musical organizations are given opportunity to give con- 
certs at various times during the year, at convocations, vespers 
and mass meetings. No football game would be complete without 
the band to lead such songs as "Old Gold" and "On, Iowa", and 
to start the snake dance after the victory has been won. During 
the last football season, the band was sent to the Midway by- 
popular subscription among the students, to give Chicago a real treat and to instill that "pep" 
that always follows in the wake of snappy music. One of the glee clubs or the orchestra usually 
participates in vesper services, convocations and the special events, such "Founder's Day", "Iowa 
Dav", and so forth, while the band may always be found at the head of the Engineers' parade 
and regimental reviews. 

Aside from these organizations, Iowa maintains an orchestra, directed by the band master, 
and often composed of many of the band and glee club members. Usually it gives one individual 
concert during the year. 

Besides the university activities in the field of music, the campus knows several student or- 
chestras that have scored success by their dance music. There are many students that are 
enabled in this way to earn their entire way through school in this manner, for dance orchestras 
are always in great demand. In fact, some of the student orchestras are often called out of 
town to play for parties elsewhere. Another opportunity that falls almost wholly to the student 
musician, is the theatre orchestra. 



The formation of an oratorio society has been discussed at various times among the students, 
and recently Professor Clapp, of the School of Music, has promised to organize one. The glee 
clubs are necessarily limited in membership, thus depriving many who otherwise would participate 
in some musical activity from so doing. Just when the actual organizing of this society will 
take place is not yet known. 

No football game would be complete without the University Band to give it the proper gusto 
as the opposing teams line up and get set for the kickoff. Nor would it be a complete day unless 
the band came swinging down the field between halves in military formation and finally halted 
in front of the stands and gave the rooters an opportunity to try their lungs on "On, Iowa". 
Again, after the final whistle has ended the milling, the same band leads the uncovered stands 
in that tribute to victors and vanquished alike, "Old Gold".

think you think, that you are in any way 
desirous of words — or more — with him, 
the editor begs leave to announce that he 
may be found in the office of Ye Aulde 
Hawkeye at any time during his office 
hours, which are from ten forty-five until a

forty-five yards, or handgrenades at Christmas ; in the latter case 
he reserves but eight blocks start. The editor-in-chief will act as 
Senor Smith's second, and all communications should be addressed 
to him within five days after receipt of copy. Mean-

is a man outside with a bill, so cough up." 

And the treasurer said: "It can't be done. The coffers are empty." 


Ah! little sausage, who'da thunk 
You would end in such a chunk, 
When once you roamed the alley free, 
And made all cats take to a tree? 
Now thou art done, thy course is run, 
Cheer up, the wurst is yet to come. 

"I'm an I. W. W.," said the match. "I'm no 
good unless I strike." 

"Yes," said the box, "but you lose your head 
when vou do." 

She — "But would you love me if you knew 
father had lost all his money?" 
He — "He hasn't, has he?" 
She — "Certainly not." 

He — "Why, of course I would, dear. How 
can you doubt me ?" 

"I see, Joe, you are raising a mustache." 
"Who told vou?" 

"The old clothes man was here today, Bill.' 

"Oh, was he?" 

"No, not Wazzy; Izzy." 

Overheard in the the garage: 
'You look flabby," said the carburetor to the 

"Yes," replied the tire; "I was on a bust last 
night, but I'll be all right as soon as I get some 
fresh air." 


At the magazines he spied her, 
And admiringly he eyed her 

Foolish man! 
Till her lips of coral hue 
And pearly teeth began to chew 


She called him up by telephone, 
His face, it wore a frown; 

For though she called him up, 'tis true, 
'Twas but to call him down.

"Her cheeks," he said, "are roses red, 
Upon a fragrant field ; 
Her ruby lips are magic ships, 
That precious treasure yields." 

But when to kiss the little miss, 
The blockhead took a notion, 

Her cheeks and lips were painted ships 
Upon a painted ocean. 


He kissed her any way. 

A man, a maid, 

An open fan, 

A stolen kiss, 

Six weeks of bliss, 

Forty years of care, 

All in the curriculum.

"Well, she's going to get married." 
"Married! Isn't she in her declining years?" 
"Not exactly. I'd say she was in her ac-

She dropped her glove, 

He raised his lid 
And picked it up 

And said, "Some kid". 
"How dare you, sir?" 

He smiled at her : 
"Excuse me, Miss, 
It's just like this, 
I meant the glove."

"That's so indefinite."

She — "I'm nobody's fool, though." 

He — "That's too bad. Just wait, though, and 
some nice man will come along some time and

She — "When is this you worship me as you

"Oh woman, lovely woman,

Oh woman, lovely woman, 

With jour pretty winning ways. 

Oh woman, lovely woman,

To think you're but a spare rib

It was chapter night at the frat house, 
And the Phi Gamms were all there. 
They were seated around the table 

And waiting for their fare, 
When the president swiftly entered, 
And these words quickly wrote: 
''What'll we do at the Soph election?" 

And the Phi Gamms answered — "VOTE". 
(And I guess they did.) 

Then the Phi Gamms they grew chesty, 
And they swore by all the gods, 
"We will win that Soph election. 
And we'll win it by big odds!" 
(And I guess they did.) 

Then up spake an elder Phi Gamm, 
And his face it bore a grin. 
"We'll not vote once at that election, 
We'll vote once — and then again." 

It's easy enough to go fussing, 

When no one knows the fact. 
But the man worth while, 
Is the one who can smile,

Buck has been in use for centuries as a thing that is passed, yet it never becomes a thing of 
the past. It possesses a unique facility for passing without passing away. 

Hence it is always present. We speak of passing the buck, but never the passing of the buck. 
Technically, the buck is a present, but to speak of a present that is passed or a passing that is 
present would be confusing. Thus, resort is made to the word buck. 

When we pass the buck we make a present of w T hat was passed to us by passing the present 
to somebody else. The act of passing the present from passer to passee passes for passing the buck. 
But the buck, thus passed becomes not a past present, but a present passed. Passing the buck 
was a popular pastime in the past. As there are no signs that its popularity is passing at present, 
the buck should be continued to be passed in the future. 



Special to The Register. 

Iowa City, la., Oct. 23. — Did you — you men 
— ever try riding the top of a Pullman, clad in 
say three times what Adam wore, in the cold 
grey dawn of an autumn morn in Iowa ? 

If you didn't, meet L. C. White, substitute 
tackle on the Hawkeye team, w T ho can tell you 
all about it. 

White was on his way to Illinois with the 
Iowa team and loyal to college man's first in- 
terest, rose ahead of the break of day to indite 
a note to a maid back in Iowa City, as the 
train speeded across the prairies. Then, fool- 
ishly, he hopped off to mail it, at a way station 

where he spied a mail box, when the porter 
lifted the vestibule trap. 

Enter, tragedy. When he got back to the 
coach the trap was down and the door closed. 
He yelled and hammered, but the train began 
to move, and he tackled the outside handle, 
clinging for dear life to the side of the car. 
Despairing of attention, he climbed to the top 
and viewed nature while the train whistled 
through the atmosphere fifty miles an hour. 

Twenty minutes of it left White chattering 
and blue and numb, and it was with difficulty 
he rolled off the coach at the next stop. He 
hasn't limbered enough yet to look for the 

But Dan Cupid is tickled. 

To the uninitiated, the following may be of 
interest. It is a complete set of signals used at 
Varsity between the men. It consists of a cer- 
tain number of fingers held up behind a girl's 
back while dancing. The person signalled to is 
instructed accordingly. 

One finger — I have one more with her. 

Two fingers — You may have the second after 

Three fingers — I'm only good for about three 
more with this one. 

Four fingers — I've got another dance spotted; 
come around later. 

Five fingers — Send help. I can't last long, so 
trade a dance while I get a little rest. 

Scene: Keith & McChesney's. 

He — "I'd like to have this ring engraved, 'From Ben to Ethel'." 

Jeweler — "Take my advice, sonny, and have it engraved just "From Ben'." 

Druggist — ''Some pills? Anti-bilious ?' 
Co-ed — "No. Uncle." 

So live that when thy summons come to join 

That innumerable caravan, which moves 

To that mysterious realm where each shall hear 

His sentence from the pauciloquous Dean; 

Thou go not like the puppy-dog at noon, 

Slinking from the campus, but sustained and soothed 

By an unfaltering gall, approach thy fate 

Like one who stacks the chips of blue and white 

About him and deals himself two pairs of Queens.

"Yes, Marge Heberling has a dreadfully 
hard part in the second act of that play." 
"But, my dear, she doesn't say a word." 
"Well! Isn't that hard for a woman?" 

Of course, after you get out of school you 
learn that beauty is only skin deep and seldom 
affects the brain ; but this is a wonderful dis- 
covery for a college boy to make when there 
are so many raving beauties about him that he 
has to take a nap in the afternoon in order to 
dream about all of them. — George Fitch. 


Like a meteor 
It flashed 
Down the street. 
A cloud, a bang, 
A whiz, a whirr, 
And in the night 
Discerned by 
Flashes and 
Roars. But 
When the speed 
Was reduced to 
Some thirty miles 
Per hour, 

And it was possible 
To discern therein, 
Through the smoke 
And dust, a smiling 
Circle of faces 
Clustered on the 
Running board and 
Hood of the cardinal 
Patrol wagon ; the 

"Whose car might this 
Be," I inquired. 
And they replied — 

"It's ours for we 
Just pledged it." 

And later I saw the 
Wagon and inquired— 
"Why the crepe on 
The hood ?" and they 
Replied, " 'Tis the 
Motor ; it is 

Sic semper Stutzis. 

Here's to the cup we love to sip, 

'T has dried many a pensive tear. 
'Tis not so sweet as woman's lip, 
But a d — sight more sincere. 

'Twas at the table at the Tri Delt House. 
Freshman — "I saw the prettiest girl I ever 
saw today." 

Pearl Powers — "Where did you see me?" 

"Have you ever taken morphine, Tom?" 
"Naw. Who teaches it?"

You that have lingered in twilight lands, 
Lands where the listening silence sings, 

Have yon felt their touch on your brow and hands — 
The touch of the half-forgotten things? 

Musing alone till the dim day grew 

Misty with vague rememberings, 
Have you seen the wavering, wistful crew — 

The ghosts of the half-forgotton tilings? 

Loves long dead and friendships cold — 
Hark to the whisperings of their wings. 

Wafting you back as the day grows old, 
Dreams of the half-forgotten things.

There was a Cribber, and he worked his trick, 

(Even as you and I), 
For his brain was dull and his head was thick, 
(And in exams we have to be quick), 
But the Cribber he fooled them by being too slick. 

(Even as you and I). 

Oh the time we waste and the crime we waste, 

And the work of our head and hand; 
That goes to the cribbing of things we don't know, 
(And things that we know we never will know), . 
And never will understand. 

But the cribs were seen that he tried to hide 

(Even as you and I), 
And a prof had stood at the cribber's side, 
(So it goes without saying that his notes were spied) 
Though to cover his crimes, he lied and lied. 

(Even as you and I). 

He had counted the cost, yet he played and lost, 

(For of course the cribber was canned). 
And those who will follow him always will try 
(And there's few who can censure for most of us try) 
He was just a poor devil who failed to get by. 
(Even as you and I). 

With apologies to Kipling. 


Or as Friend Omar might say, "Sans Peur ei 
Sa?is Reprochct." 

Wake ! for Big Ben hath put to flight 

Dreams of the Phi Gamm who called last night, 

Rousing you now to realities grim, 

In place of the dream of getting his pin. 

And, as the clock struck, those standing before 
The Coffee-Room shouted, "Hey ! open the door, 
Remember, 'tis little time we have to stay 
To quaff our roll and coffee for the day." 

And lately, by the Tri Delt door agape, 
Came shimmying through the dust an angel 

Who tripped so lightly out across the lawn 
Saying, "Let's beat it, the chaperon's gone." 

With me, along the laughing rippling rill 
That just divides the country from the vill, 
With name of Rienow and Dean Aurner left 

And nothing but each other on our mind. 

A uke and a blanket beneath the bough, 
A bottle of grape juice, a box of Nabiscos and 

Beside me, smearing chocolate o'er your nose. 
(Gee! mosquitos can bite right thru your 

Perplexed no more with Human or Divine, 
Tomorrow's classes to the winds resign, 
I light a Fatima, she takes a chew 

Of Yucatan, 
And back we go in our canoe, 

The Mary Ann. 

I sent my boy to college, 
Alack, alack, alack! 

I spent a thousand dollars, 
And got a quarter-back.

The Label 

[Editor's Note — This is from a personal experience.] 

Upon milady's desk there stands 

A leather box marked "Rubber Bands". 

I raised the lid, 

I found within : 
A pencil stub; one safety pin; 
Some cigarettes; three old thumbtacks; 
Two cancelled stamps; red sealing wax; 
A chocolate drop; four copper cents; 
Five rusty pens. 

And this contents 
Is what (no doubt) she understands 
From that neat label — "Rubber Bands".

Being a Dissertation upon and Concerning ye Trials and ye Tribulations 

of ye Prom Committee 

And since the beginning there had been a Junior Prom. 

And in the waning of the moon, Charlton called together his lieutenants of the class battles 
of many years before and spake unto them saying: 

"Verily, Bill Kelly must be elected President of the Junior Class. To this end I order you 
to work and in proper reward therefore ye shall all receive commissions on the Prom Committee." 

And with one accord, the committee went forth upon the streets and brought to the polls the 
lame, halt and the blind, where they did vote copiously for Bill. 

And on the following day, Bill did call Charley unto him saying, 

''Well done, good and faithful servant. I hereby confer upon you this cheese pancake with 
imitation soapstone jewels, which are the insignia of Chairman of the Prom Committee." 

And when the moon and committee were full, they convened and great plans were laid 
whereby the talent of each might be increased ten-fold. 

But in the midst of these festivities, pestilence fell upon the camp and the noble leader was 
stricken, and the doctors at Isolation did their best to help him join his fathers. 

And the night before he was taken, Charlton did call one of his lieutenants to his bedside 
saying, "I am leaving on a long journey, Smith. I have prepared all. Take thou, therefore, 
this cheese pancake and my blessing and do thou run the Prom henceforth, Mark." 

And the gong clanged and Charley was off, and the committee took heart and rallied around 
their new leader. 


Smith, therefore, full of ambition and coca-cola, did breeze up in Rienow's office saying: 

"We're throwing a shin-dig at your armory, Bob; just thought we'd let you know." 

And immediately the winds blew and Mount Rienow erupted, for Charlton had not prepared 
the coming of such news, and great was the wrath of the Dean. 

Whereupon many sandals were worn out by the committee in their wanderings o'er the 
campus in a vain endeavor to find a place to throw the Prom. 

And the Emperor of the Men's Gym and the Empress of the Women's Gym did grow 

Courtesy Daily Iowan. 

wrathy and spake: "Thou shalt not wax the floors of the temples." And they were not waxed 
and the committee waxed hot under their togas. 

And Smith was accordingly cast in irons and brought before Pilate Rienow and his Social 
Committee. After many hours on the rack, he was cast, torn and bleeding, into the street. 

And it chanced that many came that way put they passed by on the other side until passed one 
J. Mel Hickerson on his way to Student Council. 

And he bound up his wounds and interceded for him. And after one more battle over the 
issuing of comps the Prom was held at the Men's Gym, and corn meal was sprinkled on the 
floor so that the chickens would feel at home. 

And while the banjo, under the guidance of Dick Drake, strummed lustily, and the harping 
was done by the chaperones, Smith viewed the work of his head and hand and was pleased, for 
he saw many new togas that might be purchased with the proceeds.

Little girl, you look so small. — 
Don't you wear no clothes at all ? 
Don't you wear no shimmy-shirt? 
Don't you got no pretty skirt? 
Just your corset and your hose, 
Are those all your underclothes, 
Little girl? 

Little girl, when on the street, 
You appear to be all feet. 
With your dress so very tight, 
You are sure an awful sight. 
Nothing on to keep you warm, 
Crazy just to show your form, 
Little girl. 

Little girl, you won't live long, 
Just because you dress all wrong. 
Can't you wear a few more clothes

You will dress like Mother Eve,

The soft radiance from the shaded lights shed 
its gentle glow o'er the ballroom floor. Silken 
garments swished subtly and the music pulsed 
faintly through the perfume-scented air, exhil- 
irated the swaying couples. Let us turn our at- 
tention to the conversation of the couple who 
just passed : 

"Your dancing reminds me of Whitman's 
poems," she murmured. 

He felt a strange exhuberance and lightness. 
"Which one?" he inquired, holding her a bit 

"Any one," she cooed; "the feet are so mixed 
up in any of them." 

She — ''I will never marry anyone but a hero.' 
He — "You couldn't." 

The train is a wicked thing, — 
The engine smokes all day, 

And drags along the choo-choo cars 
And tanks up by the way. 

She — "How did you become such a wonder- 
ful orator?" 

He (throwing out his chest) — "I began by 
addressing envelopes." 

And after that bum one — 

The tall pine pines, and the pawpaw paws, 

The bumble bee bumbles all day; 
The grasshopper hops, and the eavesdropper 

While gently the cowslips away. 

"What's the difference between Prof. Sieg 
and myself?" 

"I don't know. What is it?" 

"My hair is parted and his is departed." 



Some minutes shy of six o'clock, 

A shy co-ed arose; 
She donned her public countenance, 

(She also donned her clothes), 
She dabbled in cosmetic art, 

(As artful co-eds can) ; 
She did her scanty hair up, oh! 

She wished she were a man ! 
She wound it up around a rat, 

She spiked it here and there 
With hairpins made of celluloid; 

(I wonder — did she swear?) 
She tucked her stray lochks in quite snug, 

But some she couldn't get 
To stay just where she put them, so 

She caught them with a net! 

Some minutes shy of seven then, 

Her toilet quite complete, 
She sauntered down to breakfast, 

Incidentally to eat; 
She smiled a smelting smile around- 

The kind she always wore, 
When handing back her coffee cup 

The second time for more ; 
She told a funny story then, 

And in her leisure way 
Perused the sporting columns of 

The dope sheet of the day, 
'Till mastication ended quite, 

She lanced her Arctic toque 
With variegated hatpins; smoothed 

Her perforated yoke, 
Put on her Turkish veil and cooed 

Her image in the glass; 
Then leisurely she started out 

To make a first-hour class. 


Some twenty minutes past the hour, 

At L. A. she arrived. 
Just how she got there matters not ; 

Suffice it, she contrived 
Descending polished granite steps, 

By clinging to the wall, 
An arm gallantly offered, she 

Avoids a nasty fall. 
She throws her weight against the door 

Of heavy paneled oak, 
And with some seven husky studes 

She manages to poke 
Her fragile self inside the hall, — 

Oh, mercy on her soul ! 
She's lost that instant in the mob 

That jambs the middle hall. 

Some minutes shy of twelve o'clock, 

From out that hole emerged 
A damsel all disheveled, struggling 

With the crowd that surged 
About that narrow doorway there, 

In vain attempt to find 
A passage to the missives — His 

Or Hern — therein confined. 
She's lost her Arctic headpiece, oh! 

She's not at all the same! 
The only point of semblance left 

Intact is now her name. 
She's left somewhere in 

That swarming, seething mass. 
She climbs three marble nights in haste 

To make a fourth-hour class. 

It used to be 

That when 

A girl's shoestring 

Came untied, 

It was the proper thing 

For an escort 

To tie it up again. 

But now, 

With shoetops where they are — 
Oh! well !

And one morning two Theta Xis, through some unknown reason, went to church. After 
listening to the sermon for a while, one of them turned to a white-haired old gentleman and said, 
"Pardon me, sir, but how long has that man been preaching here?" "About twenty-five years," 
was the reply. The Theta Xi settled down and said to his companion, "We might as well wait; 
he ought to be about through."

It might be of interest to some of our readers 
to know about Devine's blue sweater. It seems 
that about the first of the year he went to a 
doctor with a cold. The doctor told him that 
it would be a good thing if he had a sweater, 
to wear it. Two days later, the doctor died 
and Devine has been wondering ever since if 
he ought to take off the sweater, but caution 
has so far prevailed. 

"Everybody says that I have a big head, 
Edna. What do you think about it? Frankly, 

"Oh, there's nothing in it." 

"1052, please." 

"Hello! Who is this? Well, this is John." 
"Yes, oh, yes, er-er, which one?" 
They were walking away from the punch 

He — "Shall we sit this out?" 

She (sniffing) — "No. Let's walk it off." 

"What were you doing out in the street af- 
ter the accident?" 

"Oh, scraping up an acquaintance." 

I used to think I knew I knew, 
But now I must confess, 

The more I know I know I know, 
I know I know the less. 


I want to be a tough, 

I want to smoke and chew, 
I want to run around at night, 

Like other fellows do.

EGINALD lived in a Small Town. This was nothing against him, but it went to 
his Head, for he w r as the Big Noise there. In High School he was pointed out by 
Admiring Freshmen as the Reason Girls Flunk. Came a time, however, when the 
Burg was too Small for Reggie and he felt the call of Knowledge. Therefore, while 
the Pater struggled with the decimal points of the Expense Account and the Mater 
took in two more Washings, Reggie packed up the Family Telescope and took the 
first train for the Halls of Learning. And the Sapient Ones of his clan rejoiced and the Town 
Paper gave him the big Write-Up. 

The main trouble was that Reggie was Green and didn't realize the fact, and when he got 
off the train and his new Green Tie was spotted by a bunch of Why Sighs and they took his 
trunk check and helped him to get a room he was accordingly Puffed Up and thought of the 
Big Splash he would make. The Why Sighs had him out to eat before the Lofty Bunch got 
his Pink Ear and told him just what a bunch of Porch Climbers they really were. The 
Lofty Bunch rode him around in a big Gas Buggy and pointed out all the banks that their 
fathers and uncles owned in the town and Reggie was accordingly Impressed. 

Being allowed to run loose one afternoon, he bought a ticket to Convocation, a package of 
Camels and Bath Privileges at the Gym for all year. That evening he met a Regular Fellow 
who got him a date with a Laundry Queen over whom Reggie promptly lost his Empty Dome. 
She ate off of him and let him take her Home. He stood around till the Old Man came and 
kicked him off the Front Stoop of the Native Hut. 

Reggie soon discovered that the town abounded with those Regular Fellows. He was allowed 
to beat for games of pool and then promptly dragged out to the Shack owned by the Exclusive 
Crew. There he succumbed to the Line of Gas handed out by the Head Noise and realized 
what a mistake he had made by even association with the two above Gangs of Thugs. He 
was invited out the next afternoon and when the Appointed Time arrived the Exclusive Crew 
called for him in a big Red Jazz Box with four Plate Glass Curtains. The Cellar Gang at 
the house having had wind of his Coming, hid the Chips and adjourned to the Cellar, for the 
Exclusive Crew wanted to make the Big Impression that day. 

Reggie was treated Royal and was presented with a Real Cigar to Smoke. He was led to 
the Sanctum Sanctorium where the Head Gazabo had such a Line of Bull that Reggie had a 
button in his lapel before he knew what was going on. The Cellar Gang was brought up and 
introduced to him and he was promptly presented with four Goboons to clean. This was 
a Big Come-Down from the Royal Treatment and Reggie rebelled. Whereupon the Chief 
Slave Driver gave him a Drubbing and locked him up on the fourth floor to Meditate. Finally 
through his Dome percolated the Great Idea and Moral — "All that glitters is not Gold." 

Recently, the stenographer over at the office 
of Dean Raymond, in the engineering building,

Personally, we never could see how a sheet

Who was it put the sign, "We furnish the

There has been a joke going around about 
the grave digger who dug a grave for a man 
by the name of Button and put in his bill : "To 
one button-hole, $4.00". 

Then we ought to consider the lilies of the 
field and also the little green cucumber who 
puts up his best fight when he's down. 

Speaking of advertisements, did you see this

Uneasy lies the head that wears a "Con". 

Clyde Charlton came in and told us to be

A couple of men were matching pennies on 
the campus the other day and someone had the 
nerve to suggest that they were gamboling on

We went up to a prof the other day and in-

Been down to the swimming pool lately? 
We took a hasty smell yesterday. 

Dad came down last week and we couldn't 
persuade him that the library was a place to 
study in. 

He says he's going back to Clarinda where 
folks admit they are crazy. 

F. W. You say that you are a Phi Psi and 
also a student in school. One of your state- 
ments must be wrong. But to answer your 
question: If other sororities become angry 
when you take a Kappa to a party, do one of 
two things: either let each one know just when 
their turn is or get a steady girl like Mc- 
Dowell has. 

A. R. No. It is not proper to stay after 
twelve o'clock on week nights, as the young 
lady cannot sleep in the mornings like you can. 

You may tell Mr. Cooper that it is not best 
to wear pajamas to breakfast, as it is contrary 
to the rules of etiquette and, besides, his figure 
would look better in a barrel. 

It has been suggested that credit be given 
for the courses in English, Drawing and Bank- 
ing at Kirk's. 

Professor Shambaugh unintentionally made a 
remark about the Eskimos being ice-olated. 

No pun intended, thank you ! 

There is a light course open now in electric- 
ity; also a pipe course in plumbing. We have 
taken the two-hour course in shower baths and 
can recommend it highly. 

And when she asked what tree he preferred, 
the poor mutt said, "Yew". 

No. An atomizer is not an instrument to 
measure atoms. 

Like the old lady who, when asked if she 
used Ivory soap, said: "I used a cake six years 
ago and haven't used any other since." 

The man that sold us our cornet said there 
was a lot of music in it and we guess he was 
right for we have never heard any coming out. 

I remember when my father used to sing me 
to sleep. He would sing a verse and then say: 
"Now, go to sleep, or I'll sing another verse." 

( Confined) 

Which is very much lake playing on our 
cornet to quiet the landlady's baby. But the 
neighbors came in and said they would much 
rather hear the kid. 

But we were always somewhat backward 
about coming forward. 

When you are angry, count ten ; when you

Adam Fizzle., Recorder. 


Around the corner I have a friend, 

In this great city that has no end; 

\ et days go by and weeks rush on, 

And before I know it a year is gone. 

And I never see my old friend's face; 

For life is a swift and terrible race. 

He knows I like him just as well 

As in the days when I rang his bell 

And he rang mine. We were younger then; 

And now we are busy, tired men — 

Tired with playing a foolish game; 

Tired with trying to make a name. 

"Tomorrow," I say, "I will call on Jim, 
Just to show that I am thinking of him," 
But tomorrow comes and tomorrow goes; 
And the distance between us grows and grows. 
Around the corner! Yet miles away. . . . 

"Here's a telegram, Sir." 

"Jim died today." 
And that's what we get — and deserve in the 
end — 

Around the corner, a vanished friend.

Down at the high-priced College Inn, 

The campus fusser sits. 
The fusser is a comely gink, 

With long and slender mitts. 
He eats his toothsome delicacy 

In small and daintv bits. 

His hair is long and sleek and brown, 
And shines like Rienow's pate. 

With Brilliantine 'tis plastered down, — 
He knows he's simply great ; 

And upper classmen look to him 
To set the proper gait. 

And by his side sits a co-ed fair, 

With hair of peroxide hue, 
In spite of Old Sol's dangerous glare 
Still holds its color true. 

She inhales a glass of cherry coc, 
And eats sandwiches, too, 

Her partner steals a sidelong glance 
At nicks upon his check, 

And readjusts the cute cravat 
That's tightened on his neck, 

Then goes to chat with roommates 
About coin to pay the check. 

He gets a nickel here and there, 
From some he gets a dime. 

Another treat his only care — 
He has a warm old time, 

To keep his dates from getting mixed, 
To keep on with his climb. 

We thank thee much, my foolish friend, 
For lessons thou dost prove. 

Some day thy borrowing all will end, 
Some day it will behoove 

Your worthy brothers at the house 
To tell you it's your move. 

Phi Delt — "I hear that there were a hun- 
dred flunk cards sent out to the different frater- 
nities on the campus." 

Phi Psi — "I wonder who got the other three." 

The student health doctor was called out to 
the Phi Psi house and the patient told him that 
it was his eyes — that he constantly saw red and

Voice — "Hello! Yes, this is Miss X. at the Pi Phi House. Listen, George, Helen don't have a 
date tonight, and I just wondered if — ?" 

George — "Sure! Just a minute, please." (Leaves phone and corrals a freshman.) 

"Lissen, Pete! Date tonight. Queen of the school. You'll get a bid to their party sure. I'll 
go half the expense and if you don't go, I'll paddle you and you won't get any dessert for a 
week. You'll go — All right?" 

(Returns to the phone.) "Hello — Yes, there were ten men who wanted the date. Two of 
them are fighting over it now. I'll be over about eight with the winner. Yes. Goodbye."

The party dress is a dainty little thing which 
usually hangs from the shoulders and doesn't 
reach the feet. Exclusive of flesh, it usually 
tests out about 39 per cent skirt, 13 per cent 
waist line and 1 per cent shoulder straps. That 
part of the anatomy which is not protected by 
part}" dress is covered with silk hose, talcum 
powder, smiles and nerve. A sprig or two of 
chiffon or a lace scarf is sometimes used in re- 
lieve the smiles and the nerve. 

Silk net, laces, crepe de chine, nothing and 
next to nothing are promiscuously employed in 
the assembling of the party dress. Any color 
will do, because the color, like everything else 
about the dress, is immaterial. Party dresses 
may be tucked, plaited, shirred, embroidered, 
roped, hooked or pinned, or left entirely to their 
own devices. Everything gross and material 
must be omitted from their make-up, for they 
are by nature sensitive, idealistic, and hope- 
lessly temperamental. 

The party dress of real tone is never put on 
— entirely. It always attaches itself to some 
part of the body in a rougish, carefree fashion, 
poised as if to leap lightly to the polished floor 
in a crumpled insignificant mass. But it is only 
fooling. Should it leap, nobody would give any 
heed, and its inutility would eventually be es- 
tablished. The party dress knows what it is 
about, as well as everyone else does. — Life.

"So the doctor told Helen her life w T as too

The feeble moon pierced the fleecy tissue of 
clouds and tipped the dark waters of the Iowa 
with a shimmering, hazy light. The sleek- 
haired specimen, with the flowing end tie, had 
discarded the paddle to allow the canoe to 
float slowly down to the boathouse, and was 
now courageously leading up to the subject of 
the evening. 

"I am thoroughly convinced that we are 
fitted for one another. I have studied the mat- 
ter from the scientific point of view. We must 
be for one another." 

"Won't jou please explain yourself," she 
queried, looking up at him with large, bright 

"Simply this," he leaned forward and con- 
tinued, "according to science, which is the only 
way to approach the subject, we are fitted for

are short and I am tall, and powerful ; you are 
peppy, vivacious, while I am more sober — and 
quiet. We are opposites, and opposites should

are exceptions to all rules, and I know of one

The clouds parted knowingly and fancastic 
shadows spread out toward the tiny canoe. He 
waited a moment, watching her intently. Then 
a hushed "and how is that?" 

"Well, you see," she smiled up at him as the 
moon again hid behind a filmy cloud, " you 
and I are alike in this: I could never earn my 
own living." 

An the water gurgled merrily on, leaving 
the canoe to float its course. 



Scene: Principles of Economics lecture room. 

[Enter studes. Three minutes later, enter Dr. Brisco; throws hat in corner and goes back 
down stairs for lecture notes he has forgotten. Re-enter Brisco; rumples hair, bangs table, and 
the flow of wisdom commences:] 

"I wish to call your attention to the last issue of the North American Refuse, page twenty-one. 
Here we have an article written by myself on the 'Economic Relation of the Tapeworm to Man- 
kind'. I expect to have this translated into Chinese soon, so if any of you find difficulty in 
reading this, you may read it in a more familiar tongue if you will wait a few weeks. (Shows 
teeth and grins; the class takes the cue and laughs heartily.) I originated this idea when in 
New York. You will remember that I have told you of the time I was there, and of Caruso's 
salary. It was about this time that I received letters from Roosevelt, Jack Johnson, Eugene 
Debs, Bill Haywood, and Mack Sennett, offering to start a presidential boom for me. I refused, 
however, as I like to be among young people. (Looks at co-eds and smiles. Realizes his mis- 
take and continues.) I will have no Dolly Vardens in my classes, however, and I won't recom- 
mend a man that smokes, 7 won't, I won't, I WON'T. 

•'Now, as I was about to say, this policy spoken of in the North American Refuse reminds me 
of my trip to England. It was shortly after I published my book on Efficiency that the King of 
England wrote me personally and requested that I come over and investigate the factory condi- 
ditions. Speaking of efficiency, one of the most exasperating things in the world today is to find 
that you have forgotten in what pocket you have placed some article of importance. During 
the past three months I have been working on an efficient system which effectually overcomes 
any difficulty that may be encountered. In the top of my dusty derby hat I have riveted a small 
card-index case. The system works as follows: Before dressing, make a list of all the things 
that you will carry with you through the day, together with the pocket in which they will be 
placed, and file them in their alphabetical order in this case. When you desire an article you 
have but to remove your hat, unlock the cards, turn quickly to the articles desired and the card 
will show you in which pocket they are to be found. By a system of cross-indexes, you will 
never fail to get the object; for instance, there will be two entries: one, Money (see Kale) and 
another, Kale (see Money). Not only is this valuable in finding articles, but one can readily 
see the inestimable utility of the system in replacing an article that has been taken out of a 
pocket in a fit of absentmindedness. (Pauses for breath.) 

"Now, as I was saying, I will show a few pictures on the screen. Aahh ! here is a picture 
I took myself in England. It is a picture of — of — of — uummm — of a small town in England. 
I walked along the street and saw them same buildings. I drank out of that there pump. Here 
we have a factory behind the hill of the preceding picture. It is the — the — the — well ! anyway, 
I personally investigated the factory and they took up several of my plans. Here is a picture of 
Stratford-on-Avon. While here I slept in Shakespeare's bed. (Voice from back of the class: 
"Do they still call it Shakespeare's bed?") I have several letters of recommendation from 
Lloyd George and — " 

(Bell rings; studes rouse themselves and file past Dr. Brisco, who is now hunting for his hat 
and books for the next class in an efficient manner.) 


We laugh up our sleeves because our funny- 
bone is there. 

According to the Twelve Tables of the Ro- 
mans, a man could have but one bier. 

The man who named it "Near Beer" was a 
poor judge of distance. 

What we would like to know is what has 
become of the other 97% per cent of the above 
mentioned fluid. 

It is sure tough when we pay 35 cents a 
pound for steak, but it is tougher still when we 
pay 18 cents. 

A doctor has to keep his temper or he will 
lose his patients. 

In Texas they are making sausages from 
jack rabbits. We expect to hear any time that 
food has taken another jump. 

A certain girl dyed her hair black. We 
found out the reason and would tell you, only 
she wants to keep it dark. 

We suppose that the beautiful bouquet of Li- 
lies of the Alley which were sent is were just 
to pave the way. We take the hint. 

One of our friends was talking about another 
one of the female of the species. She made the 
remark that with that wealth of hair that if 
the hairpins were removed her hair would fall 
to the floor. We agreed with her and sug- 
gested that someone might have to pick it up. 

By the way, we saw a sign up in one of the 
movies that said, "Young children must have 

But we dont' believe in signs. 

We bought a nice pair of patent leather 
shoes to go to formals in, but the patent must 
have expired.

last night and in return were turned down.

a trifle."

Have we omitted the Kappa Sigs? 
Well — Here's one. 

This is said of one fraternity, 

And I tell it with great glee, 
How they rushed a suffering Freshman, 

All one night till half past three. 
How they plead and sobbed in concert, 

Told their popularity, 
Till the Freshman rose and answered — 

"Yes! Ill join your sorority." 
Then with one accord they plucked him, 

And mopped him o'er the floor, 
And with righteous indignation 

Shoved him out the door. 


Meeting called to order by Old Man William's Boy. Minutes read and 
expla.ned to Dyke. Previous week's correspondence with Rienow read

Mr. Lymp— "In knots." 

Professor— "And why in knots instead of miles?" 

Mr. LYMP—"] suppose they couldn't have the ocean tide if there were no knots." 

A man may smile in the face of death, 

But you will never find 
A man who can draw a placid breath 

With his collar loose behind. 

"Going up to hear that lecture on appendi- 
citis tonight ?" 

"No. I'm tired of those organ recitals."

Letters from a Chinese Stude 

Honorable Parent-Father: 

Am writing that have arrived at seat of knowledge. With Extinguished Dorcas have held 
interview and fifty yen have paid. Three yen, O Honorable Father, to physical upkeep by 
honorable Docks attended in ailment. This, I think very good idea, for it makes fourteen thous- 
and yen when all have paid in all ; the which for iodine and advice is given. Have concurred 
also, O Honorable Father, with the Mikado of the Gymnasium, the head of which is very bright 
for hair is gone. Physical examination did also take. The bottle filled and tank blown up, I 
depart to class. Honorable Rabbit Wassam my instructor is. Fourteen yen on books have ex- 
pended. Another five to my boarding host have imparted. Must shut up, O Honorable Father- 
Parent. I think of thee among the chrysanthemums. Thy Son, 

Ting A. Ling 

* * * * 

Honorable Parent-Father: 

Am writing to say that have moved. The rooming-hostess to my singing did object, the which 
by thoughts of Sing Lo the fair in my home among the lilacs was inspired. The speech much 
easier is, and in the streets am able to learn a helluvalot. Most wonderful O Parent-Father, is 
the three yen Fee care secured. Small blister on the toe did form and Honorable Dock at hospital 
padoga did remedy. Tell Most Respected Parent-Mother to have no fear; that in all cases will 
be by wonderful Institution taken care of. With honorable countryment did visit places of in- 
terest in city. At Kirk's Tea Room discerned through the incense, ivory spheres, the which by 
Students were propelled with sticks. Also many new words were here apprehended. Must to 
lecture depart by the Honorable Bill Rienow addressed. Thy Son, 

Ting A. Ling

Honorable Parent-Father: 

Am writing to say that several written invitations have received, drill to attend by Col. 
Mumma requested. Have written that with him will concur at Kirk's Tea Room, the which to 
speak over. Last night, O Parent-Father, heard sounds of strife while on the street prevariating. 
Upstairs did rush the cause for which to discern. Did learn that it was Varsity-Struggle the 
which every week occurs and is not dangerous. The men and flower girls in proximity do 
walk, by jazz attended. The music-jazz, O Parent-Father, is very bad; the cymbal player alone 

has harmony. Cymbal especially noticed as by Honorable Uncle Tip A. Ling constructed was. 
Quite homesick was name of Honorable Uncle to see. Last week, students in auditorium did 
assemble, lungs to test in honor of game-contest the which on the morrow did occur. Quite 
similar to Varsity-Scruggle was, though flower girls did here sit on side. Trouble over ball 
arose, the which disDute by Duke was settled by the pushing for red sweaters into mud. The 
which did satisfy the people who home did go after Ancient Gold was sung. Sandals from 
Sing Lo thankfully received. Will wear them every day. Thy Son, 

Ting A. Ling

Honorable Parent-Father: 

Am writing to say that great sufferings of head attend the which are inflicted By God. 
Honorable Dock imparts that sandals it all have caused by wearing to class. Attend Dock's 
pagoda daily, at which glass pencil in mouth is thrust and throat with iodine is marked. Many 
younger Docks now encounter me who say pendicks must removed be quite. Three Yen Fee 
wonderful system still pertains. Quite punk am. Thy Son, 

Ting A. Ling

Honorable Parent-Father : 

Am writing to say woe is me and our household. In hospital pagoda am confined with flue 
sickness. Seventeen yen now each week must expended be the which for food is not paid for 
because for tea, broth or hard boiled eggs is given. The nurses quite attentive are and once 
a day my bedside visit, the broth to bring. Also are the Docks and regularly each week do 
once me overlook and seventeen more yen collect. Still punker am. Thy Son, 

Ting A. Ling 

Honorable Parent-Father: 

Am writing to say that out of hospital pagoda just have got and new registration have done 
with Extinguished Dorcas. Firty Four yen have paid for flue sickness and now am told that 
three more must go to the robbers. Think this health yen fee darn rotten idea. All Students 
makes now twenty eight thousand yen paid for iodine and advice. Seat of knowledge sure 
clean up. Put new silkworm crop early to work. Health fee require many yen. Have burn 
prayer papers for bad luck of three yen Fee. Thy Son, 

Ting A. Ling

I fall in love with ladies, — 

It's one most every week. 
But though I fall on Saturday, 

On Monday I'm quite meek. 

— Selected. 

As I was slowly roving 

O'er Atlantic's vales and hills, 
I came upon a sign-post 

Which read, "Please post no bills". 
And then — 

I walked a little farther on, 

And come upon another sign 
Which read, "Postum" 

There's a reason.

The time has come when you and I, 
Old Pal of mine, must say goodbye. 

Goodbye to lectures, profs and books, 
Goodbye to shady Campus nooks ; 

Goodbye to football, proms, and drill ; 
(Their memories will haunt us still.) 

Goodbye to all we held most dear, 
While we have worked or idled here. 

There — take my hand — let eye meet eye, 
Old Pal of mine, goodbye, goodbye. 

■ — Selected. 

A Journalist is a grumbler, a censurer, a 
giver of advice, a regent of sovereigns, a tutor 
of nations. Four hostile newspapers are more 
to be feared than a thousand bayonets. 

— Napoleon. 

An Appreciation 

It is not wholly with a feeling of regret that we have seen the 1921 Hawkeye go into type, 
and finally return to us in sections awaiting the final O. K. What, when viewed from October, 
appeared to be recreation has proved to be a two-edged sword. From April's viewpoint, it is 
wholly different. 

We hope that this service we attempt to render to the class will be found satisfactory. We 
have no apologies to make for the mistakes we have made and only trust that the creditable will 
outweigh the faulty, and that the reader will find less to criticize than to praise. 

There are many to whom the Hawkeye is indebted for co-operation. Room permits us to 
mention but a few that were especially helpful, and we wish to express our appreciation to 
Prof. C. H. Weller, University Editor, for his kindly suggestions and comment; to J. Mel 
Hickerson, editor of the 1918 Hawkeye, for aid in planning parts of the book; to the Townsend 
Studio for co-operation in securing photographs, especially for the Representative Women section ; 
to Ralph E. Overholser, who aided materially in reading proof; to Joe Benge for his many art 
suggestions and drawings; to the junior class for its interest, and to the staff as a whole, without 
which the book would have been an impossibility. 

We have profited by the year just spent. It has been both profitable and pleasant. Our 
thanks are to those who have trusted us in this connection, and may the work of our hearts and 
hands be just as pleasing to you as it has been to us. — The Editor.
